There is a video a day just about of an animal in some sort of problem motioning to have a human help.

Its incredible what mobile video technology has done to see this, and other events.

What? It let him get close and he didn't reward it by eating it? He should have ate it. I am sure it is very disappointed (or relieved). We are supposed to eat stuff that presents itself to us. It was like a Manta sacrifice. Something else is just gonna eat it anyway. The circle of Life (eating Life).

What a waste of good manta meat.

My cat has a brain the size of a walnut (no forehead, no brain), but it can still use it. Animals sometimes do amazing things.
