    The Food Chain: Does it make you sad to witness it?

    It is a sight to see a wolf running a deer down to eat. Or, to see a hawk swoop down to feed on smaller creatures or carry it off to bring to a nest to feed its young. I know that is how the food chain works, but it saddens me to witness these things in the wild.

    Is acceptance the key?

    I don't think there should be anything sad about it for it is the norm in nature. One organism's prey is another organism's predator. What we should be sad about is the fluctuations in the food chain in the recent years. Disturbing the ecological balance will be catastrophic.

      That is a good point you make about the ecological balance. People seem to be rather good at disturbing it and the animals suffer.

      It got to me recently to see a Coopers Hawk eat a Robin for dinner in the yard. I love the Robins.

      Then, I am missing a few Ruffed Grouse that I suspect the hawks ate. They are like wild chickens to me that come to eat corn.

    I have to admit that watching nature shows I could do without that part. I know it is all natural to this earth but since one day the lamb will lay down with the lion I can't believe it was the way it was meant to be but put into motion by sin somehow.
    Great question.

      That is kind of the same as what Chuck Nelson said in his comment. Thank you, Jackie.

    The Creatures of the world are magnificent...but Life is Life and they have their own set of rules.
    Why even some mothers shun or eat their young, as they instinctively know when their off spring's health is compromised. Even though this is Natures way of " keeping balance " , people with empathy and apathy feel the emotion of sadness...but do understand... ANIMALS only hunt/kill for FOOD....or for protection...now if only we can get Humans to get along as well as the animal kingdom...
    Acceptance is harder for some people than others...
    just my thoughts...interesting question..

      Yes, if people could only get along as well as the animal kingdom, we would have a much safer world. Good point.

    While this is normal in the fallen world, it was not that way in the pre-fall creation and it won't be in the end.  Isaiah 11:6

      "The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them."
