A MOTHER’S STORY
A mother can do anything to protect her children and the same happens with animals. This giraffe mother stood her ground to protect her child from hungry lions.
FENDING OFF PREDATORS
In this viral video, the Mother Giraffe and the baby were going about there day in South Africa. There was a reserve nearby so that the rangers could watch over for illegal poachers, or even a lion.
OUT WITH HER YOUNG
Unforunately, the day held some pretty nasty stuff for this little family. Lion surrounded the giraffes and there were no rangers around to help them out.
THE CHASE IS ON
The mother did her best to save the calf and run away, but her efforts were in vain. Her baby was attacked in front of her eyes, but she didn’t give up.
LITTLE ONE DOWN
The lions were savagely ripping apart the calf in front of its own mother. She couldn’t do anything and looked around for help.
After landing the killing blow, the lions dragged the carcass of the giraffe to a nearby bush where they ate the child in front of the mother. We know about the food chain, but this probably wasn’t so easy to watch.
THE MOTHER’S PAIN
This video went viral because of the heartbreaking moment. The lions tore through the flesh as rangers rushed to the scene hoping it wasn’t too late.
A HEARTBREAKING DISCOVERY
The rangers were unfortunately too late. The calf was beyond saving as the wounds from the lions were beyond repair. A sad incident indeed, but stuff like this happens in the wildlife everyday, but this one managed to catch everyone’s eye.
