MAMA’S LAST HUG

Animal Emotions and What They Tell Us about Ourselves

by Frans de Waal

New York Times best-selling author Frans de Waal has spent four decades at the forefrontof animal research. Following up on his 2016 bestseller Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are?, which investigated animal behavior and intelligence, his new book,MAMA’S LAST HUG: Animal Emotions and What They Tell Us about Ourselves [W. W.Norton and Company, March 12, 2019; $27.95 hardcover], delivers a fascinating exploration of the rich emotional lives of animals that is just as enlightening and provocative. Once again de Waal proves the perfect guide to the cutting-edge research that can help us understand the animal world. With dramatic stories of rats, horses, dogs, dolphins, elephants, and apes, among others, de Waal shows that humans are not the only species with the capacity for love, hate, fear, shame, joy, generosity, and empathy.

De Waal begins MAMA’S LAST HUG with the death of Mama, a fifty-nine-year-old chimpanzee matriarch who formed a deep bond with her caretaker, the biologist Jan van Hoof. When Mama was dying, van Hoof filmed their goodbyes and witnessed something remarkable: the emotions that Mama expressed were every bit as profound as those of van Hoof—she was sad to leave him but also recognized the sadness he felt and responded to it by comforting him.

This story and others like it form the core of de Waal’s argument. He points to lab experiments in which rats, when given the choice between eating a cookie or helping a fellow rat in distress, will choose to help. Dogs have been known to “adopt” the injuries of their companions, pretending to limp in response to the pain experienced by their owners. Chimpanzees like Mama have such a sophisticated sense of empathy that they grasp concepts of fairness and justice and use them to great effect inside their communities. In one common experiment, chimpanzees rejected food-sharing offers that seemed unequal, even when that rejection meant the participating chimps received no food at all. This is, notably, exactly what humans do in the same experiment.

De Waal discusses a whole range of complex emotions and how they manifest themselves in physical behavior and facial expressions. Both dolphin and killer whale mothers have been known to carry along the bodies of their dead children, often for days. Bonobos have deep-belly laughs, dogs hang their heads in shame, horses roll their eyes out of fear. Elephants revisit the bones of their loved ones, sometimes years after their companion has passed away. All of these have human counterparts.


De Waal also looks at the darker side of emotional intelligence. He recounts the story of an alpha male chimpanzee who was killed by an experienced older rival and a young-up-and-coming male. The calculating manner in which the duo trapped and killed the former leader, and the brutality of the violence done to the deposed alpha male, left no doubt in de Waal’s mind that what he witnessed was a case of murder among the chimps.

Following the lead of Aristotle, who imagined animals as a sort of reacting machine, Western society has committed to the idea that there is a fundamental distinction between the emotional life of humans and all other species. This line of reasoning extends to modern thinkers like Richard Dawkins, who suggests that all signs of emotional life in animals are illusory byproducts of a deeper relentless and amoral dive to maximize genetic duplication. De Waal systematically challenges all of these outdated theories, opening our hearts and minds to the many ways in which humans and other animals are connected to each other and can form the sorts of complex bonds that last a lifetime. MAMA’S LAST HUG is one of those rare books that will transform how readers view the living world around them and will shift how they understand their own connection to a family of all living things.

- Early Praise for Mama’s Last Hug -

“A captivating and big-hearted book, full of compassion and brimming with insights about the

lives of animals, including human ones.”

Yuval Noah Harari, New York Times best-selling author of Sapiens

“I doubt that I've ever read a book as good as Mama's Last Hug: Animal and Human Emotions, because it presents in irrefutable scientific detail the very important fact that animals do have these emotions as well as the other mental features we once attributed only to people. Not only is the book exceedingly important, it's also fun to read, a real page-turner. I can't say enough good things about it except it's utterly splendid.”

Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

“Before I realized Frans de Waal's connection to Mama's actual last hug, I sent the online video link to a large group of scientists saying, ‘I believe it is possible to view this interaction and be changed forever.’ Likewise, I believe that anyone reading this book will be changed forever. De Waal has spent so many decades watching intently and thinking deeply that he sees a planet that is deeper and more beautiful than almost anyone realizes. In these pages, you can acquire and share his beautiful, shockingly insightful view of life on Earth.”

Carl Safina, author of Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel

“After you've read Mama's Last Hug it becomes obvious that animals have emotions. Learn how

they resemble us in many ways.”

Temple Grandin, author of Animals Make Us Human and Animals in Translation

“Frans de Waal is one of the most influential primatologists to ever walk the earth, changing the way we think of human nature by exploring its continuity with other species. He does this again in the wonderful Mama’s Last Hug, an examination of the continuum between emotion in humans and other animals. This subject is rife with groundless speculation, ideology, and badly misplaced folk intuition, and de Waal ably navigates it with deep insight, showing the ways in which our emotional lives are shared with other primates. This is an important book, wise and accessible.”

Robert Sapolsky, author of Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst

“Another fascinating book from Frans de Waal. Once again, he makes us think long and hard

about the true nature of animal emotions.”

Desmond Morris, author of The Naked Ape

The Administration has finalized major changes to the 2015 Greater Sage-Grouse conservation plans. These changes gut vital protections for the grouse; undermine the deal made by Western states and federal officials; and create uncertainty for millions of Westerners and the bird.

 

The revised plans eliminate vital protections for the sage-grouse. Specifically, most of the Sagebrush Focal Areas — 8.7 million acres of the key habitat for grouse and some 350 other species that were off limits to immediate development in the original plans — are now exposed to increased oil and gas extraction and other energy development.

 

“Federal administrators began dismantling safeguards put in place by the 2015 plans as soon as they could, removing each layer of conservation management and mitigation,” said Steve Holmer, Vice President of Policy for American Bird Conservancy. “Now grouse populations are declining across their range and have nearly disappeared from Washington State and the Dakotas. The trend is ominous.”

 

“These changes will put the grouse back on a path toward needing an Endangered Species Act (ESA) listing,” said Mike Parr, ABC President. “That’s exactly the outcome that the 2015 cooperative plans had sought to prevent.”

Humane Society of the United States undercover investigation shows plight of dogs in a laboratory being dosed with pesticides and drugs

There are more than 60,000 dogs used annually in experiments at hundreds of labs across the country

WASHINGTON (March 12, 2019) – Today the Humane Society of the United States revealed the results of an undercover investigation at an animal testing laboratory where thousands of dogs are killed every year. The investigation reveals the suffering and death of beagles and hounds used in toxicity tests for pesticides, drugs, dental implants and other products.

Over the span of the nearly 100 days, an investigator documented nearly two dozen short-term and long-term experiments that involved tests on dogs. The Humane Society of the United States investigator saw dogs killed at the end of studies, and others suffering for months including 36 gentle beagles being tested for a Dow AgroSciences pesticide.

Dow commissioned this laboratory to force-feed a fungicide to beagles for a year, with some dogs being subjected to very high doses – so high that up to four capsules had to be shoved down their throats.  Those who survive until the designated end date of the study in July will be killed. Dow has publicly acknowledged that this one-year test is scientifically unnecessary. The United States government eliminated this test as a requirement more than 10 years ago and nearly all countries throughout the world have followed suit through efforts that have been led by Humane Society International in cooperation with members of the industry, including Dow.

Kitty Block, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States and president of Humane Society International, said: “The disturbing findings at this facility are sadly not unique. Experiments are happening at hundreds of laboratories each year throughout the country, with more than 60,000 dogs suffering. But that does not have to be the fate for these 36 beagles. For months we have been urging Dow to end the unnecessary test and release the dogs to us. We have gone to considerable lengths to assist the company in doing so, but we simply cannot wait any longer; every single day these caged dogs are being poisoned and are one day closer to being killed. We must turn to the public to join us in urging Dow to stop the test immediately and to work with us to get these dogs into suitable homes.” 

This investigation was carried out at Charles River Laboratories in Michigan, and this is only a snapshot of what is going on in the U.S. including at for-profit companies, government facilities and universities for various testing and research purposes. The dogs are often provided by commercial breeders -- one of which, Marshall BioResources had more than 22,000 dogs at one facility in June 2018.  

Beagles are used in testing because of their docile nature, which was evident during this investigation conducted between April and August 2018. The Humane Society of the United States shared its findings with Dow and has been negotiating with the company in hopes of securing the release of the 36 dogs in their study.

Video released of the investigation shows workers carrying out experiments on dogs on behalf of three companies – Paredox Therapeutics, Above and Beyond NB LLC and Dow AgroSciences.

Among the beagles tested on, the Humane Society of the United States documented the horrible short life of one dog named Harvey who clearly sought attention by humans and was characterized by the laboratory staff as “a good boy.”

Harvey was being used to test the safety of two substances when poured into the chest cavity in a study commissioned by Paredox Therapeutics that received support from the University of Vermont. Hounds were also used when the protocol called for a larger dog breed, such as a study by Above and Beyond Therapeutics for surgical implantation of a device to pump drugs through the spinal canal. Charles River carried out tests on dogs for at least 25 companies during the time of the Humane Society of the United States investigation.  

Scientific studies have shown that more than 95 percent of drugs fail in humans, even after what appear to be promising results in animals. The Humane Society of the United States is seeking to replace dogs and other animals with more effective non-animal approaches that will better serve humans.  

“It is our obligation to tell the stories of the animals and move science, policy and corporate ethics into the 21st century,” Block added.
