This is why animals win and humans.... well, we see what's going on.
Animals can exist along side one another. Have enemies. Know their place in the food chain. If a larger animal kills a smaller animal for dinner, the
family of the smaller animal doesn't hold some kind of grudge and go after the larger animal- they just continue on.
In this video is the instinctual reaction of continuing. All species 'want' to continue to be, whether or not they have awareness of it. The leopard
was doing what it had to do. No hard feelings either way- if it's your time, it's your time. Then as soon as the cub found the newborn she knew she
had to take care of it. The cub was only a year or so old, so we can assume she has been reared by a parent (didn't do research about the kitty) and
still remembers that. Or- cause she's a female, instincts turned on.
Whether or not she felt bad for the kill will never be known. I'd like to think that animals are similar to humans in their interactions with
themselves. So my guess, is she felt a little bad, but as an adolescent, doesn't really understand the scope of what she did.
And... another poster was probably correct. If the baby was only a day old, it's not gonna make it long without a mama and some mama juice.
We could learn things from animals... too bad our brains (egos) are too big to accept anything from a 'lower' species.
