A Lioness Found a Young Antelope Lost in the Savannah and Returned It to the Herd

The lioness spotted a small, lost antelope in the middle of the Savannah and saw it as an easy prey.

Just observing the situation were the native guides. However, the way that the situation continued to play out surprised them as well.
The lioness guided the young antelope back to the herd rather than engaging in her typical hunt. The strange encounter was captured on camera by the Serengeti National Park tour guides in Tanzania.

Initially, they stopped to observe another lioness hunt; however, while they watched from a distance, they noticed how a wildebeest foal, confused, came from the thickets and ran straight to the predator.

The foal was so nave that even the smell of a lion did not frighten him. The lioness, who was clearly confused, was approached by the antelope, and she spent some time trying to decide what to do.

The lion is an adaptable hypercarnivore. More than 70% of their diet is meat, and most of the time they are ignorant of these concerns. However, it’s possible that this lioness had just finished a fruitful hunt and wasn’t hungry.

Animal rights groups assert that in this instance, the maternal instinct won out over the hunting drive.
According to one of the Serengeti’s representatives, “About 10 years ago, in our park, another lioness took an antelope foal under her protection, so this is not an exceptional event.”
