Sometime the animals show the love, compassion, and loyalty many people don't show...


The law of the wild says kill only when you are hungry. Photographer Michel Denis-Huot, who captured these amazing pictures on safari in Kenya's Masai Mara in October last year, said he was astounded by what he saw:

"These three cheetah brothers have been living together since they left their mother at about 18 months old," he said. "On the morning we saw them, they seemed not to be hungry, walking quickly but stopping sometimes to play together. At one point, they met a group of impala who ran away. But one impala youngster was not quick enough and the brothers caught it easily."

These extraordinary scenes followed:

They should be taught not to play with their food.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

They may have been "playing" with it but my guess is that the impala was in a somewhat catatonic state that prey animals go into when they have been captured and death is iminant. Could be wrong.

I think the impala was definitely in shock at first. But not sure about the end. Mostly because it seems to be very young, and they still are more "flexible" to accept something new.

That is just too cute!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
