Inspired by the most useful resource in the history of cinema (a website that tells you whether or not an animal dies in more than 600+ movies), here’s a definitive list of absolute SADNESS: all the movies you haven’t watched since you were a kid because a beloved animal was slaughtered.

Prepare to cry tears all over your keyboards…

1. The Land Before Time

Hear that? It’s the sound of millennials everywhere frantically texting their moms “I <3 U”.


2. Old Yeller


A kid forced to shoot his own dog after contracting rabies? Hold on while we start BAWLING FOREVER.


3. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

This heroic ant gave its own life to save the family and we still miss him to this day.


4. The Never Ending Story

When the horse Artax drowned in a pool of mud literally called the SWAMP OF SADNESS, we should’ve known.


5. Turner and Hooch


After all that bonding, did they have to take away our Hooch? Honestly?

6. Balto


Loosely based on the real-life Siberian husky, Balto’s commemoration as a statue alone was enough to leave us in tears.


7. Dumbo

Dumbo’s mom’s sad trunk did all the crying for us.


8. Lion King

What kid didn’t bawl their faces off to this part? (Answer: Kids with no souls.)


9. Bambi

The trauma of this scene still remains with children everywhere.


10. Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

Yeah, it was supposed to leave us laughing with tears, but as children, this just made us cry.


11. All Dogs Go to Heaven


We should’ve been able to prepare ourselves for how this was going to end. It’s right there in the title!


12. Babe

The death of that sheep only lasted mere seconds, but it felt like an eternity. Poor sheep.


13. Eight Below

So this is from 2006, but college can still be considered a late childhood, right? When the dogs spend the night with their fallen Maya, we were just devastated.
