A 130-year-old tombstone was found in the English forest WikiPet.ru
What could be better than walking through the woods in fine weather? Good for health, helps calm the nerves and ... surprise with unusual finds.
Englishman Sid always carries a camera with him when he walks in nature. And during the next of them he needed it more than usual.
Sid noticed something in the grass that he first mistook for an ordinary piece of concrete. But looking closely, he noticed an inscription on the stone.
It turned out that this is not an ordinary stone, but a tombstone, with an inscription and dates. But who could be buried in the middle of the forest?
Sid returned to the same place the next day, armed with a knife and other things necessary to clean the stone.
Then it turned out that the tombstone was not dedicated at all to the person, but to the rabbit.
An inscription has been hiding under moss and mud since the end of the 19th century: "In memory of the little Duchi." And next to the words, a rabbit was engraved.
On average, rabbits live for about 10 years, but Duchi lived from 1869 to 1882, which means he was 13 years old. This age suggests that his family really loved him very much and cared about him very much.
Here's a find that perpetuated the love of a pet.
