"i love nature" saith the halfwit. Lion pulls an unborn foetus from a buffalo it has killed and eats it https://t.co/4GkrT7k96O— A_Linder (@A_Linder_5) May 13, 2016
The hungry lion is seen pulling the dead baby from the buffalo’s womb on the edge of a watering hole. At first, a man watching asks what it is, adding: “It looks like a bit of stomach.”
After the large cat carries the fetus away, a woman gasps in shock. “It’s a baby,” she says. “That was pregnant, it got the baby out. Oh my goodness, gross!”
The lion is then seen wandering back to where one of its buddies was resting under a tree, before settling in the shade to feast on its tasty snack.
Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves, covering almost 19,500 kilometers (12,116 miles).
The park has a 650-strong anti-poaching team and two drones to keep animals safe from humans, but other interspecies battles are left alone for our viewing pleasure.
