This is what I call unconditional love!
A French photographer captured this dramatic scene as a lion cub cried out for help on the side of a cliff. The pride quickly came to his rescue, with mom putting her own life on the line to grab the little guy before he fell even further. Motherly love is a beautiful thing.
Clinging on for dear life to the side of a vertical cliff, the tiny lion cub cries out pitifully for help.
His mother arrives at the edge of the precipice with three other lionesses and a male. The females start to clamber down together but turn back daunted by the sheer drop.
Eventually one single factor determines which of them will risk her life to save the youngster – motherly love.
No punishment, just some love to make sure the little guy is okay.
