The Infant Clings To Its De.Ad Mother As The Leopard Clamps Her Lifeless Body In Its Jaws
This is the awful moment a defenseless baby monkey clung to its deceased mother as her lifeless body dangled from the lips of a leopard. Despite putting itself in grave danger, the tiny vervet monkey refused to let go of its mother after the predator pounced at Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park. During the hunt on October 14, the leopards, headed by a female named Olimba, also k.il.l.ed the juvenile.
Wildlife photographer Shafeeq Mulla from Chipata, Zambia, captured the heartbreaking scene on video, saying, ‘Nature is not always lovely, and this picture surely tells us the brutal truth of life.’ Animals must perish in order for others to survive in order for the environment to be sustained.’ This is the awful moment a defenseless baby monkey clung to its deceased mother as her lifeless body dangled from the lips of a leopard.
After the predator attacked Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park, the small vervet monkey refused to let go of its parents. Despite the danger it was putting itself in by clinging to its mother, the young monkey refused to let go and was finally mu.rdered by the other leopards in the group.
