I am looking for a book about what happens to animals in the wild when they are sick and or dying and how other animals treat them. It can be an animal stories or reference books. I have not read many animal story books so my experience with this area is slim. Does anyone have any ideas of books or resources. It can be about animals in general, but wolves would be best.

If you have any questions please do ask.

It's a long time since I read them, but I think some of the old Ernest Thompson Seton books had stories on that theme, but I can't remember which.

Gorilla Doctors:Saving Endangered Great Apes by Turner addresses how animals get sick in the wild, the effects of humans on animals, etc.
