I felt helpless as I watched a cruel ‘African’ drama unfold in front of me at Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe.

Life in nature has a cruel way of showing us that survivors aren’t always the strongest, or the smartest, but more often simply the luckiest.

The baby elephant was eaten in front of its mother while they struggle to free themselves from the mud.

That is the brutality of life.

On the other hand, a clan of hyena gets to live for another week with the feast.
