Giraffe Tries Saving Her Dead Calf From Hyenas

Giraffes are known for their gentle and graceful nature, but a mother giraffe proved she can be fiercely protective when it comes to her young. In a heart-wrenching scene, a female giraffe was seen defending her dead calf from a group of hyenas in the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The mother giraffe, named ‘Moment’, was seen standing guard over her dead calf’s body for two hours as a group of hyenas circled around them. Despite the hyenas’ attempts to get close to the calf, Moment fearlessly chased them away each time they approached.

The giraffe tried everything she could to save her calf, including pushing it with her head, nudging it with her nose, and even licking it. But unfortunately, her efforts were in vain. After two hours of trying to revive her calf, Moment eventually accepted that her calf had passed away. Moment’s heartbreaking story has gone viral on social media, with many people praising her for her courage and dedication to her calf. While it is a sad story, it is also a reminder of the motherly instinct that all animals have.

Moment’s story also serves as a reminder of how important it is to protect animals from poaching and other threats to their survival. Without intervention, many species could face extinction. It is our responsibility to ensure that these animals are protected so that other mothers can continue to pass on their love and protection to their young.
