Who can resist a story of despite-all-odds love? PBS’ Nature will drop your jaw and melt your heart with tales and footage of a goat guiding a blind horse; a doe who regularly visits her Great Dane surrogate mother; a juvenile gibbon choosing to live with a family of capuchins, and more odd couples. Its investigators, along with noted animal behavior experts Temple Grandin and Marc Bekoff, explore why animals are able to form these special bonds.
