Young men often complain about the cruelty and unfairness of modern society. This moving video video of an old alpha lion (who had led an aggressive pack for years) being castrated by the young lions is a reminder that life is cruel. There are no rules. There is only exercise of will.
As one viewer writes, we can learn from this lion:
“A hard life. When one sees the heart and pride of a lion it becomes apparent most utilize the comparison too loosely. Fighting and not breaking to the end. Broken limbs, bleeding, massive wounds, and they still don’t give an inch. So much bravado and heart.
“If memory serves correctly the one getting killed in the vid (Kinky Tail or Mr. T) was one of two brothers who ruled an area with a high level of aggression and a high body count over the years. You reap what you sow I guess.
“The day before he and his brother killed a lion from the younger group. It too is on vid and it’s brutal as well.
“This time the tables turned and the level of violence which includes castration and hours and hours of torment and attack makes ones really feel.
“Amazing displays and sad as well.
