Rescuing Baby Animals in Africa (VIDEO)

Rescuing Baby Animals in Africa (VIDEO)

If you love to see cute baby animals, you’ll get your fill here … and feel good, too!  

These little baboons, leopards, cheetahs and other animals were rescued by Africa Bush Rescue after their mothers were killed, mostly on shooting reserves.

The babies are given tender loving care, medicine, and ample food. And as soon as possible they are put with others of their kind so they will be ready to re-enter the wild, where they belong. 

Though I wonder where they are placed so as not to face the same fate of their mothers…

The tragic results of canned hunts - poor, innocent orphaned baby animals. These so-called "hunters" should just shoot each other.

What a cruel species we are!!! Those who tame any magnificent wild animal for the purpose of hunting - I wish that sometime there is an accident and you find yourselves impaled with an arrow
or a bullet or caught in a snare. Believe it - I won't lift a finger to help any of you!!

Fantastic news.

Shooting a caged animal isn't hunting but simply murdering an animal without any chance of defense or escape.

shooting tame and drugged animals is not hunting it is slaughter.I am not against real hunting where there is no waste and animals do not trust the hunters but this is despicable

Should shooting reserves be outlawed? Oh my God! There shouldn't even be such a word association!

Shooting an animal in a cage when it's been drugged is not hunting. Its "I'm too lazy and even cowardly to go out and face totally wild animals that could hunt me in return and have to use some aim" pretty much.

I could never hunt, but I live in a community that primarily does hunt -- luckily, a majority of them are humane enough to only hunt during the season, stay in their limits, don't let anything go to waste, and do not target an animal that has a baby/has babies. Not to mention they have come back with a new scar a time or two from the animal getting them back because the animal is not trapped.

Seeing these little one's makes me mad -- they are in good hands, thankfully, but its upsetting that some of them ended up there when they shouldn't have in the first place.

I hate hunting. it causes animals such as these to lose their mothers, and often their lives. it's very good that these babies are given another chance at life

12:50PM PST on Dec 2, 2011

I don't see what anyone would get from shooting a mother animal on a game reserve. It's all just so wrong!

12:22PM PDT on Nov 1, 2011

.....But of course if the only danger to the animals is from the hunting business - i.e. the land will not be developed for farms/anything else, and if it is unlikely that there will be poachers, then yes, I'd personally say ban them and make them illegal as soon as possible!

Just on a small scale note... Just a few years ago, I used to have a garden full of hedgehogs. Now I…

My Ike does the same. But when I get up to play with him, he is no more interested !

Hmmm, time will tell...
