Did this lioness try and revive the unborn calf of the mother she killed? — 2 Comments

  1. Cats may live in the moment, but I also believe somewhere deep down, they have the capacity to feel empathetic at some level.

    About a year ago, I was watching a wildlife video of the Masai Mara Refuge that showed a lioness had killed an antelope and was feasting on it. Suddenly, she came upon a live antelope baby that had just been born. She stopped eating, sniffed the baby and started licking it. I thought for sure the baby was next for lunch. Imagine the surprise to see the lioness lick it clean and nudge it to stand. Once it did, the lioness just watched as the antelope walked away to the herd in the distance. Blew my mind away!
