“Lioness Befriends Baby Antelope After Killing Its Mother In Uganda” by Sara Gates originally appeared on huffingtonpost.com, October 9, 2012.
It’s not often in the wild that an antelope turns from prey to a member of the pride, but that’s exactly what happened recently at Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.
Photographer Adri De Visser captured photos of the amazing sight when a lioness befriended a baby Uganda Kob after killing its mother. In the photo series, the lioness seemingly adopts the baby antelope, nuzzling it and picking it up by the scruff of its neck.
