Actually no not a good job. This is man interferring in mother nature. There is a reason why these things happen.
When man interferes, fck ups happen. This is not meant to be cruel, it is just simple facts.
Same reason as it is against the law to rescue and nurture a wild animal when it has been hurt.

Slow down, Ms. Honey. Man's interference usually causes more destruction. It's nice to see one go the other way.

Nature takes care of itself, and gets a well balance, when man interferes, it becomes inbalanced.
I do not know why you make the remark slow down. I love wildlife, and am against hunting for any reason, as there is no reason these days. If man did not interfere in any way, as I said nature would take care of wildlife.

Islam teaches that whatever happens is Allah's will. I think Christianity wants people to be more involved by helping your neighbor.

I get your point. For me, if I can save a suffering creature from more pain, I'll do it. I don't believe my intervention will upset nature's balance.

Man already interferes with wildlife, most often in a negative way. We are arrogant enough to believe we have dominion over our fellow creatures. There may come a day when humans become nothing more than food for some beings we can't even conceive of. I'm looking for loopholes.

A question comes to mind. Since vegetarians don't consume animal products, are they also interfering with nature's balance?

The story is sweet but......
what if it had injuries they didn't know about, it can take hours to die from internal bleeding. What if it ends up with pneumonia, another prolonged and dragged out suffering also just to end up dead? What if mom changes her mind and goes back the other way tomorrow and no one is there to help the calf?

My point is you have no idea what will really happen to the calf. Frankly most people are just fine with out of sight out of mind, it means they can tell themselves everything is okay. Maybe that's why so many people abandon animals out in the forest? They think they are okay, when they are really starving or food for predator?

What if the animal is mortally injured and suffering? Would you kill it to end the suffering?

Interesting question, and a moral dilemma. Many years ago the author Leo Tolstoy, a known pacifist and animal rights supporter, was asked what he would do if he were in the jungle and a tiger was going for his throat. "I would do the best I could", replied Tolstoy.
I take that to mean that even if you can't always be true to your principles, be as true to them as you can. So, in answer to your question, I would do the best I could. In this particular case, if I could determine that the animal was suffering and had no chance of survival, I'd make the exception.

In India,people ward off tigers by wearing a scary mask behind their head and stick out the tush to moon and insult the Tiger .

you have your head tucked up your nether regions, seriously. let's look at it this way. by your logic if a person murders another person we should not get involved because hey, it's nature. or if a pedophile rapes a child we should not get involved because hey, it's nature.

perhaps you should keep your seriously retarded ideas to yourself...
