Aw: Wounded lioness shows softer side by adopting baby antelope (TOO CUTE PHOTOS)

by Chi Ibe

The Daily Mail tells the story best:

“These touching photographs show a lioness adopting a helpless antelope calf – after she killed its mother.

“The intimidating beast had just finished devouring a Ugandan Kob, and had the wounds to show for it, when its terrified child emerged.

“Instead of making the defenceless infant her dessert, however, the merciful creature took pity on it and carried it away to safety.”

Photographer Adri De Visser was on hand to document the amazing images at the Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda.
