Serval Kitten vs Lion

Do not watch this if you love cats.
Nature is nature. Sometimes it can be beautiful, like when a herd of elephants helps a calf out of the water when it is stuck.
Other times, nature can leave us speechless and heartbroken.
This is one of those times.
Watch the sad moment a serval mom and kitten get separated by a lioness that drives the kitten to fight for its life. Unfortunately, the kitten’s determination was no match for the lioness.

This unfortunate sighting was filmed by 56-year-old entrepreneur, Rikard Ryden, while on a safari in the Maasai Mara last month. Rikard Ryden, Wildlife Photography Sweden, tells the story:

“We were driving around the Mara on an early morning when our guide, the very best one in Africa, Mr Lenny Koshal, spotted a serval! Shortly after, we also spotted the kitten. It is extremely rare to see a serval, let alone a kitten! We all got really excited. Only seconds later, we saw two lionesses sneaking into the bushes where servals had just gone. Our guide got a bit upset since he knew the serval kitten was in danger. We drove up to the lionesses and tried to disturb them, but they were too invested in the servals already. They did not care too much, even when we almost bumped into them!”

“We saw the lionesses hurry to one part of the bushes, and the mother serval ran off. We drove around to see what was going on. The kitten was found by the lionesses! When we got there, the kitten was doing its best to scare the lioness away.”

“Sighting ended when the serval kitten charged and tried to scare away the lioness, but all of a sudden, the lioness just took the kitten and bit it.”

“We have not even seen a Serval before. Our guide who has been a full-time guide in Maasai Mara for 12 years has only seen serval kittens on 4 occasions. Our sighting has probably never been seen before and definitely not on film. Lions are not even known to go after servals.”

“After kitten got attacked by the lion, the serval mother was running around looking and calling for the kitten and it was unfortunate when the mother realized the kitten was gone. When she saw the kitten, she took off.”

    I think some people that burn down buildings in protest of people getting shot by the police could learn from this. You don't play with things that are dangerous and can kill you. Your pride is no shield to physical harm. Really sad to see this little creature suffer.

    As brutal as this is its nature, unlike those people in Denmark that thought brown bears and wolves could co exist in the same zoo enclosure.. if your a dog lover don't try to find the video its way worse than this is. Spoiler the bears are more ruthless than the lioness is. 😥😔

    Interested to read that the guide actively tried to prevent this. I would have assumed that they never did that, no matter what. Not that I think it's a bad thing, it's not as if the lions were doing it for a feed, there was no good reason for the serval to die. Nature is indeed arbitrarily cruel and we shouldn't intervene too much, but some utterly pointless death and suffering can be averted.

    From several videos of lioness haunting, they do not seem to kill indiscriminately; it seems that if they have other options they would rather eater older animals. I've seen a video of a lioness almost eating a literally seconds born wildebeast, but stopped and was looking at the scattered heard instead. I don't know if its the size or the placenta that stopped the lioness from eating the baby wildebeast. This is similar in she didn't even eat the kitten, lioness looked almost conscientious for killing the kitten.
