In one of the National Parks in Botswana, an incident occurred that made me believe in miracles. The mother lioness was walking with the pride in the park and heard crying. She went to the sound and saw a fox. The animal was injured and needed help.
Due to damage to the hind legs, the baby could not move. And then the male of the flock attacked the cub, ready to tear it to pieces. However, the lioness bravely blocked his path and did not allow him to do so.
The lioness came to the defense of the fox and did not allow anyone to offend him, even if it is the king of beasts. Apparently, a powerful maternal instinct woke up in the lioness, and this saved the life of the fox.
Interestingly, with every attempt to attack, the lion received from a fellow tribeswoman a punch in the face with a paw.
So the family of lions left the fox and moved on, and the cub soon got better and went to look for his family.
We see very frequent evidence confirming that animals are much kinder and fairer than people. After all, the lioness in this case voluntarily abandoned the prey, which the predatory instinct itself should have prompted to attack. But the maternal instinct was much more powerful and strong, and she did not.
And we hope that the miraculously surviving fox found his lost family and was able to reunite with her. A wonderful and incredible story, isn’t it?
