Lions are extremely dangerous predators and skillful hunters and when they choose their next victim, the animal has a very little chance of escaping and surviving. Unfortunately, that is the law of nature and lions are at pretty much the top of the food chain. But as we have seen many times before, animals can surprise us in many ways and behave in a manner you would never expect from them.
A young lion was filmed preying on a baby calf and of course I thought it would be too painful to watch, but that’s not what happened.
Instead of killing the calf, he not only spared his life but even protected it from other members of the pride. Apparently he kept the calf for three days before letting it go and the lucky baby even succeeded in finding its mother.
