Nature Can Be Cruel

A total of 173 sheep were killed almost instantaneously when lightning struck a mountainous area in the Hoboksar Mongolian county in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region. It rained heavily and hailed —  the tightly packed sheep were sheltering from the rain under a pine tree, which acted as a conductor for the electricity. After the lightning split the sky, the sheep outside bleated and they all died. In addition, 30 sheep were carried away by floods.

Three young tigers are seen killing and feeding on a young cub at a safari park in eastern China, reportedly because they had not been properly fed. The shocking photos of Siberian tigers eating a rare white Bengal cub were taken by visitors touring the wildlife park in Rongcheng, Shandong province.
