Sometimes people can take a lesson from animals!

It's amazing how animals can sense when another is in danger and help them, even if they're normally enemies.

I think mankind can take a few lessons...

    Wow, that first swipe was pretty hard but the bear was gentle after that. Nice post, I have never seen a bear do that before!

    Cheers

    I've contended all my life that animals are more intelligent and emotional that we will accept. There's a special place in hell for factory farmers.

      So true!

      I saw a documentary about a lioness that raised a baby oryx, and she raised at least one or two more I think. Animals definitely have more feelings than a lot of people I know, which is really sad (regarding the people).

      Here are 2 videos about her. The first one is a short clip. The second is the documentary.



      My mom and I really had 2 loves - travel and animals. When my parents were in Bahrain I visited them and my mom and I went on a week long tour to Kenya, which had always been my life's dream. It was absolutely amazing!

      I kept a diary while I was there and took quite a few pictures (unfortunately this was before digital cameras, otherwise I probably would have taken thousands). Been thinking lately about making it into a book and writing about my other travels as well. Brings back tons of great memories. As a matter of fact, think I'll go take a look at it now....

        Well, I read my diary, looked at all the pictures, and thought I'd share a tale with you. Think you'll get a good laugh out of it. Even I can laugh at it now, although I didn't at the time.

        I've always loved to explore. The first thing I always did when I went someplace new was walk... and walk... and walk.

        The first game reserve we went to was Masai Mara. Our lodge was just outside the park since nobody can spend the night in the reserve. So as soon as we got there I asked if I could take a walk. Our driver said sure, no problem, just be back in a couple of hours for the drive.

        Ok, so I started walking. There were quite a few trails and I thought I'll just always take the trail to the right, that way I'll know how to get back.

        Now keep in mind this is in the wilds of Kenya. We may not be in the game reserve, but there are still plenty of wild animals outside the park. And to be honest with you, that thought didn't occur to me until about 45 minutes later when I decided I should head back and.... which way should I go?? I looked around. There were trails everywhere and I had no idea which one to follow. I couldn't see the lodge, so I just headed in the general direction.

        At one point I saw the lodge and thought, yes... but then it disappeared again. Needless to say, all these thoughts started running through my head, the number one being a headline that said 'Stupid tourist gets eaten by a lion'.

        Finally, when I was REALLY starting to get scared I saw a school girl carrying some books and I went over to her and asked if she could tell me how to get back. She walked me back and everything was fine.

        I didn't have the nerve to tell my mother what happened until several days later and she just shook her head and said 'Jennifer' (you know... that name your parents call you when you know you're in trouble!).

        So that's how my week started in Kenya
        But I made it back fine and went on to have an incredible week.

        And, btw, if you like coffee, you've got to try Kenya coffee. I almost OD'd on it. It is absolutely out of this world!
