Lessons From the Animal Kingdom

This story from the beastial realm seems to prove the feeling of gratefulness is a universal response to rescue from suffering.
People in Cali, Colombia, are shocked to see the bond between a large African lion and a woman who saved it from abuse, involving long, affectionate kisses and hugs between the pair.

Ana Julia Torres, who runs the Villa Lorena animal shelter in Cali, fed and nursed Jupiter the African lion back to health years ago after it was found abused and emaciated in a traveling circus.
One would assume that Sunni and Shi'ite alike would be grateful to the USA for liberation from the dictatorial rule of Saddam Hussein (Kurds being the redeeming exception). Unfortunately, a stupid animal shows more humanity than the majority of enraged Mohammedans.
