Let’s Get Back to Our Story …
The nature of animals is still incomprehensible to many of us. They reach have one of the most unexpected reactions, either violently or tenderly.
Recently, in the Madikwe Game Reserve, in South Africa, a ranger named Gerry Van der Walt, witnessed something that completely perplexed him and wanted to share it, because of its great importance.
Lionesses often hunt together, in teams, attacking primarily big ungulates.
Gerry and a group of guests had the ability to see the time in which the lioness hunted an antelope, from the moment she started to stalk her till she lastly caught up with her victim.
After she caught up with the antelope, everybody expected her to start feeding upon her prey, but what she did left Gerry speechless.
They saw the lioness approach the antelope’s stomach and pull on it, however as the scene became more clear, they realized that it was not actually the stomach, but a child antelope.
The lioness ran into the shock of her life when she realized that her victim was mosting likely to be a mother
” I’ve seen lionesses kill other pregnant prey and nothing happens, they simply remain to feed like it was nothing,” Gerry said, totally stunned.
” From that moment the lioness’s actions changed totally, she appeared to be confused by what was happening. She started to browse her as if she expected help from somewhere.”
The lion is an apex predator and key, although it can participate in scavenging habits provided the opportunity.
In spite of her perfect hunting nature, she seemed to empathize that there could be a life right here, and that seemed to completely baffle her.
” The lioness stopped feeding to be beside the baby antelope, moving it with her nose as if trying to get it to react and get up. She took it in her mouth and lay motionless for moments that appeared forever, not knowing what to do with it. She searched in all directions as if she expected something. “
” After a few minutes she started to leave the bush, to get closer to the mother antelope. She quit previously her and extremely carefully established the baby antelope down on the ground. During she maintained looking around her, she looked stressful and nervous.”
It appeared as if she wanted to restore the baby at all times, it was as if she recognized that a mother constantly respects herself
” The lioness slowly went back to where the lifeless body of the mother antelope was, however it was not to eat again. What the lioness did was lie down beside her body until she fell asleep “.
Perhaps it was her method of saying: “I didn’t want to do something like that to you and here I am”
That was one of the most extraordinary moment for Gerry and all the visitors, who had been watching whatever from a distance. What everyone questioned is if the lioness felt any type of remorse for having taken the life of a mom or for not having the ability to save the baby antelope.
” I do not know if I will ever understand just what happened, but I know that in a cruel and stunning means, we saw African magic and its animals.”
A disturbing and relocating experience that reveals that even wild animals can be more sensitive and compassionate than humans.
It can be hard to believe that animals have such a level of principles to regret their actions, specifically if it is these wild animals that hunt for the sole purpose of feeding.
Anyway, this surprising story does not stop leaving us with the deepest of life lessons.
