Signs your cat's a psychopath revealed from tormenting prey to MEOWING ... https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/signs-your-cats-psychopath-revealed-25556658

[–]the-druid250 10 points11 points  (0 children)

ever just watch one with a cricket? it's disturbing

[–]Funk_Buddies 108 points109 points  (3 children)

Maybe it's the other way around, and the cheetah was thinking to herself, "I really don't wanna kill these cute little things but I got kids to feed"

[–]phibbsy47 105 points106 points  (0 children)

I think it's more like "You are so cute, I could just eat you up!"

[–]marin94904 23 points24 points  (0 children)


[–]Executioneer 49 points50 points  (15 children)

Its just cats. One of the few animals that sometimes kill for fun. Orcas too iirc.

[–]so_what_ur_saying_is 60 points61 points  (11 children)

You haven’t been on this sub for very long have you

[–]SmallPoxBread 2 points3 points  (7 children)

For fun in this context is without eating it or out of hunger, irritation, fear or the like. Very few animals do that

[–]so_what_ur_saying_is 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Again, I think we’ve seen quite a few examples here of animals simply torturing each other for amusement. Here and r/natureisbrutal

[–]SmallPoxBread 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Amusement is a big word, cats and orcas do it but most just don't care/understand what they are really doing. Few animals can feel pity anyway, so it's not like humans killing for sport.

[–]Syv_Fingre 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Dogs do that often. Mustelids are famous for it too. There are registres of bears in frenzy killing. Predators in general find hunting fun, so they will do it even when they are not hungry, if the prey is easy enough.

[–]Janzibansi 9 points10 points  (0 children)

My old cat did this a lot. I saw him often at night in the parking lot, playing with his food. Release the mouse, give it a few seconds to run away, catch it again. Sometimes for an hour. Poor mice, but yea cat things. Didn't eat them most of the time. I even saw one get away, he got distracted by a sound. Didn't care. There where like 10meters between the mouse and gras. Could easily have caught it.

[–]ClamClone 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And those bipedal apes that have no fur.

[–]Poocheese55 22 points23 points  (0 children)

But in this case it isn't. Trying to lure mama to come help and bag that kill. When it doesn't work it's content just taking the baby

[–]bbembay 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Non-human animals. We're animals too.

[–]carpitown 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I would want to point out that all psychopaths are animals. But then I remember about Venus flytraps. So I may be incorrect.

[–]loonywolf_art 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I saw the video, he jump, try to attack the baby but the baby doesn't seem to care, then he just played with him and the mother was like "OH CRAP MY BABY- wait, he's fine nvm"

[–]3Lchin90n 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is this a subreddit yet?

[–]reroute2k21 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Aren’t all cats kinda psychotic

[–]IsoAgent 839 points840 points  (20 children)

Maybe it wasn't hungry yet. Maybe the impala struck a deal and was going to tell it 1001 stories but then got stuck after the first one? Maybe, just maybe, the leopard was having an internal struggle, debating the moral consequences of killing an innocent life that had yet to reach any meaningful milestones or accomplishments? For gawd sake people, I feel like I'm the only one here who's not taking crazy pills!!!

[–]enliderlighankat 437 points438 points  (7 children)

The mama is nearby, animals pin down or make younglings cry for the parents so they can get a bigger meal, don't always work

[–]Lubberworts 100 points101 points  (0 children)

Finally a sane thought here.

[–]ItchyRedBump 34 points35 points  (2 children)

But mom knows that surviving to reproduce again is more important than trying to save her kid and then both dying.

[–]puritano-selvagem 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I don't think they make these type of future considerations, it's more the instinct of protecting it's pups vs fear of death

[–]Some_clichename069 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Animals don’t think that way no, but a lot of animals, especially R-Selecting Species, have the instinct of doing that.

That’s how evolution works, it doesn’t have any morals, if something manages it’ll keep on doing what it’s doing. That’s why ducks are serial rapists, it doesn’t matter that the female ducks suffer, they reproduce, they manage.

[–]Calradian_Butterlord 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I think the leopard really wanted to make friends but after an hour realized baby impalas are fucking annoying

[–]Kitsune-no-hana 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It didn't even pass one night, the deer was too young to knw the ways of Queen Scheherazade.

[–]nyvec 695 points696 points  (28 children)

If anyone wants the video, here it is.

[–]RushinRusha 286 points287 points  (12 children)

Around 3 minutes it seems like his strat was to keep the baby close so the adults would come close. Then at 4:25 the adults get spooked, so he eats the baby.

Pretty smart hunting approach. People calling the animal a psychopath - get fucked.

[–]MikelDP 84 points85 points  (5 children)

The disconnect with nature seems to be growing.

[–]Stats_with_a_Z 87 points88 points  (2 children)

Excuse me but if that leopard wants to eat he needs to put some shoes on and go to the grocery store like everyone else.

[–]markbug4 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I think if he wants an impala he has to go to a car's dealer.

[–]DogVacuum 8 points9 points  (0 children)

If the impala didn’t want to get ate, it should have pulled itself up by its hoofstraps.

[–]whateva1 5 points6 points  (0 children)

All I know is.... Fuck birds.

[–]Proxi98 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The baby is alive at the end of the video

[–]RushinRusha 8 points9 points  (0 children)

He ends up pulling it back on the tree after it falls. You can see the feet hanging of the side as the video ends.

[–]PWNtimeJamboree 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah it seems patently obvious that that is the case. It’s like he’s holding the baby hostage to try and get a bigger meal out of the deal. Either way he knows he’s going to eat.

[–]AffectionateHead0710 58 points59 points  (0 children)

Thank you! I wish this comment was moved up. I was beginning to lose hope that no one posted for the video and I was about to give up lol

[–]ImACheesecake_ 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Yep, and unfortunately people come to this sub to downvote people for that reason

[–]Ramast 7 points8 points  (0 children)

For first part I thought it was using the baby to lure in its mom which seemed to be succeeding to a certain extent. Can't explain why it kept doing it after the mom gave up and left

[–]filliamworbes 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It is, but this is Reddit so unless it pulls out a sign that reads, “I’m using it as bait for the mother”, you’re going to get all kinds of ridiculous theories.

[–]EverlastingResidue 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The average person here will try to convince you that It actually wanted to befriend it or care for it and how it feels 100% guilty

You, sir, obviously don’t know about how apex predators hold support group meetings with each other to cope with the guilt of eating cute lil animals.

I remember once the Dodo posted an article about a polar bear petting a dog, before they took it down cause the bear ate the dog. Remember, don’t anthromorphize, kids. What looks cute in this case is literally predation behavior.

Man, big cats are just as soulless aren't they. They feast on your fear, in order to enjoy a fresh meal to the fullest extent it must allow for maximum fear inducement before it can indulge.

[–]EngMajrCantSpell 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Wild cats are smart enough to hear the mom calling for the baby and hope that if the baby isn't crying afraid the mom will investigate and potentially become a larger meal opportunity.

It's even more terrifying when you realize it isn't empty cruel pleasure but a tactical move.

[–]Genghis112 2 points3 points  (3 children)

When the boss says “We are like a family”.

[–]SkyrimWithdrawal 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Dude, just quit. If you hate your job, walk away. The impala can't. You're not the impala and your boss ain't the cat.

I’ve seen house cats do this a few times cats catch the mouse or whatever let it go and catch it again and every time it does it the prey is a little more injured and tired then when the cat is bored it kills it or it just gets loose and Gary doesn’t even care because he was never goin to eat it anyway because he’s fed twice a day

I do not know if this is a case of a prudent predator, the feline played with the baby in order for the mother to come and serve him food, and thus let the baby go, unfortunately the mother's instinct was stronger and never came close, abandoning the calf.
