Stunning photos shot by a Dutch nature photographer show a fierce lioness getting cuddly with a baby antelope — moments after she finished feasting on the tiny creature’s mother.
Photographer Adri De Visser, 50, took the snaps in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda, after travelling to the scene to shoot a few lions feeding on a kill.
“When I got there, I saw the lionesses feeding on a Uganda kob’s (antelope’s) carcass,” he told Britain’s Daily Mail.
“I followed them for a while and they went up a tree to rest from the sun,” he said. “I was watching them when I heard a noise. It was the kob’s fawn that had been hiding in the long grass.”
De Visser said the cat eyed the antelope tyke for about 45 minutes but never pounced, even as the helpless little calf crawled between her legs “like it was trying to get its milk.”
Suddenly, the rumble of a park ranger’s motorcycle frightened the beasts, the shutterbug said.
“So the lioness picked the fawn up by the neck and carried it off like one of its own,” he said.
“We heard from a group of tourists that the fawn was later spotted alive and well.”
Ok so how this Lioness gonna eat a Antelope and then take care of the baby? I mean that is some gangster shyt son!
