Moss guards her dead cub

This morning we came across an old female named Moss who was guarding her cub that had clearly just been killed within the preceding couple of hours. Watching this is one of the saddest things imaginable; Moss repeatedly tried to groom her cub and wake it up, but to no avail. We do not know what had killed the cub, but it had blood on its neck.
