One real hungry little mouse .. and the boss!  It apparently left the big cat too amazed to respond.
 

 
This extraordinary scene was captured by photography
student  Casey Gutteridge at the Santago Rare Leopard 
Project in Hertfordshire. The 19-year-old who was photographing the
leopard for a course project, was astounded by the mouse's behaviour.

He said: "I have no idea  where the mouse came from - he just
appeared in the enclosure after the keeper had dropped in the
meat for the leopard. He didn't  take any notice of the leopard, just went 
straight over to the meat and started  feeding himself.

"'But the leopard was  pretty surprised - she bent down and
sniffed the mouse and flinched a bit like she was  scared.  In the
meantime the mouse just carried on eating like nothing had happened ..
 
 

 
".. but even a gentle shove does not deter the little creature 
from getting his fill.  It was amazing, even the keeper who had thrown the meat into the enclosure was shocked - he said  he'd never seen anything like it before."
 
Project owner Jackie James added: 'It  was so funny to see -
Sheena batted the mouse a couple of times to try to get it away from her food.

'But the determined little thing took no notice and just carried on."

Sheena was brought in to the Santago Rare Leopard Project
from a UK zoo when she was just four months old. She is one of 14 big cats in the private collection started by  Jackie 's late husband Peter in 1989. 

The African Leopard can be found in the continent's forests, grasslands, savannas, and rainforests.
 
 

 
...... so the mouse continued to eat the leopard's lunch and 
show the leopard who was the boss.  Just proves no one can
push you around  without your permission, no matter how insignificant
you may appear.

Praise be to Allah, the Greatest, the Most Bountiful!  Isn't this amazing?!!  The big cat decides to spare the life of the little mouse which is like a single morsel of food before its mouth, even though the big cat is just as hungry as her little "boss."  So, why does she decide to spare the little guy?  The reason is that animals, unlike humans, aren't bullies.  If they fight, their natural instinct is to fight a big creature who can fight back at least to some extent.  But they won't target someone who can be swallowed in a tiny mouthful, someone who is completely unaware of the dangers around them as this little "boss." 

On the contrary, if an armed human being confronts an unarmed person whom he labels as an "enemy," they will have no qualms shooting them even if they're unarmed holding a white flag.

These photos define the clear difference between humans and animals.  We need to learn a lot from them.
