This is a pretty popular video that had spread around a while ago and it seems rather baffling. Legadema kills a mother baboon and while dragging its prey away, finds the baby of the baboon still alive. Seemingly, its maternal instincts kick in and out of curiosity or care, it takes care of the baby for the rest of the day not even caring about its previous kill. Was this a truly altruistic act imparted by a Leopard mother caring for the helpless or had it not a clue of what it was doing.  Whether it was raising it as its own or preparing it for a meal, no one will know as the baby baboon died over night.
