Every year, vast numbers of the Serengeti’s wildebeest migrate to Kenya’s Maasai Mara in search of fresh grazing and water.

Excellent, wildlife-filled tour of Kruger National park, South Africa

The photographer saw this wildebeest calf shortly after it was born in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa. Little did he know that he would witness its death later that same day; the small herd of wildebeest walked right past a pride of lions and the calf was caught by a lioness and then taken by this male lion.

Like, they are the ones more directly responsible for the death of the monarch, they’re the ones who stepped all over him. Animals in the Lion King world are apparently intelligent, they could have stopped when they saw the king was trying to get through.
