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.
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.
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.
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..
