Science: Can Animal Smell Death?


Eventually, animal can smell death? According to BBC News, animals such as cats and dogs can chemical changes in our body when death is approaching. During this period of time, animals tend go closer, licking and giving you his last hug.

Taken From BBC News
A cat has apparently "predicted" the deaths of 25 residents in a nursing home in the US. It seems fanciful but can pets detect illness or even death?

Oscar displayed sudden affection for dying residents
The residents of Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre in Rhode Island would be forgiven for getting a little anxious if Oscar was to curl up next to them.

Not generally friendly to patients, this show of affection has been used to warn families that their loved one has not long to go.

Sounds far-fetched? Animal behaviour experts in the US say Oscar is probably smelling a chemical given off by the body.
