The baboon squealed in fear and pain as the lioness played with it before eating it

A photographer has captured the last agonizing moments of a baby baboon’s life after it was caught in the jaws of a lioness.

Photographer Stew Nolan’s images show the infant monkey appearing to beg the 300-pound lioness to spare it.

In a previous shot, the tiny monkey appears to be for its life to be spared but the lioness instead toys with the infant before killing it

Instead, the predator toys with the tiny monkey for several minutes before killing it at South Africa’s Kruger National Park.

The female lion appeared to have also killed an adult baboon. In Nolan’s picture, the larger animal can be seen tightly gripped by the predator’s jaws

The dramatic encounter happened at South Africa‘s Kruger National Park by Nolan, a 41-year-old photographer, and entrepreneur.
