No I can't watch them and always change channels when it gets close to this sort of thing happening.
Actually it has got to the stage that I no longer even start to watch the David Attenborough shows on TV as so many of them are on wild animals.
It makes me shudder and I just cannot watch.

Double amen.

Of course!! I just love the David Attenborough tv shows. It is important that these shows are educational and realistic. Animals have to eat and that is a fact of life. You can't hide from this fact. The animal world is not all cute, cuddly and fluffy. Documentary makers have to cater to intelligent people who realise that death is a part of life, and it cant be avoided. It is not as if the entire show is devoted to death. There may be one death or none at all, but this is real life, so if there are people who go all gooey when they think about it, its best not to watch.
Honestly it makes so sad, but David Attenborough's Predator's programme was brilliant and makes you realise it's sadly, just life. Which makes it really beautiful.
I find it hard to watch, to be quite frank.

I know it is part of life.

Have seen one where the Lioness looks after the little Impala instead of eating it... That was weird.But it died some time after, from lack of food...I think the Lioness was not included into the pride.
No :((((((((

It can be a little hard sometimes. However I love watching these programs. I've brought myself to the reality that carnivorous animals must eat, and there is no other way for them to get there food. Some animal has to die for others to live. I tell myself that that's just how it goes.
I used to but now - no. Makes me sad.
No,I don't like to see wild animals kill their prey, especially if it's a baby one, but I can also understand they have to do it to survive, it's their natural instinct.
I know it is simply nature,but I prefer NOT to watch these parts of documentaries.There are plenty of really gorgeous parts to watch so I just walk away when the 'death scenes' come on! I know what it about to happen,but I don't need to see it!!
That's Nature in the wild.
'The Circle of Life', so to speak.

I watch, knowing that an animal will only kill for food, to stay alive.

Humans' kill one another for many more horrible reasons'.

Which is the more worse of the two???
I prefer not to watch these. For me, it's akin to watching a horror film. You know that if the zebra goes into the water, it will be snapped up. So you find yourself yelling at the television set. I know it's "the circle of life"...I would just prefer an arc, that's all.

I've come to realize that this is how nature works. It's quick and only used as food. It traumatized me when I was younger as I couldn't work out why the adults let this happen but now I just look away. Animals are far more kinder than human s though they take what they need. W e for sports and fun
I can watch them but it is not pleasant. However, this is the call of the wild and how nature operates. I guess it is survival of the fittest.
No as I find it too upsetting to watch
Even though it makes me cringe, animals have to eat other animals or they starve to death. Us non vegetarian humans have animals killed for us to eat meat, so what's the difference?

I'm not keen to watch one animal kill another, but at the same time I understand it it their mane food source, first in best dressed.
