VIDEO: Man captures dog's emotional reaction to 'The Lion King' movie

Published:

Josh Myers took to Facebook to share a video of his dog's reaction to a scene in "The Lion King."

Myers said he and his girlfriend were watching the classic Disney film while his 4-month-old puppy, Luna, was playing with her toys. But when the movie got to the notoriously sad scene of Mufasa's death, Luna stopped in her tracks to watch it play out.

And just like any emotional being, Luna began to whimper and cry at the sight of the king's lifeless body.

The video also shows Luna lie down as Simba snuggles up to his dead father.

"The sweetest thing I think I've ever seen," Myers wrote in the Facebook post. "4 months old and she's already showing empathy."
