My Unique Meal

Three little cubs were born to me An injured me devoured all three Survival, my need Humans paid no heed A bad deed?  You and me.  Authors note:  An injured tigress ate her three cubs last month at the Jim Corbett Park. The incident of cannibalism is not uncommon among tigers, but the exact reasons behind it remain uncertain. Is it because of the inability of the authorities to look after the injured animal's food or other basic needs? Why do tigers have to starve? All these questions remain unanswered. Who is to be blamed? Animals or Human beings?   Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
