Blood Sacrifice – πŸ“½ via @latestkruger

An encroaching predator forces a quick decision on the mother’s part.

Birthing young leaves her vulnerable, and as harsh as it seems it is the right move.

This behaviour is commonplace in the wild.

For example: pandas almost always have twins, and they always abandon one twin to the wild, choosing the child she believes has the better chance at survival.
