I am speechless too......okay - over it! Aberation or common? Could it be we humans are more animal than we would like to admit? Certainly makes one think! This got to be one of the strangest and most original animal pics I have seen. Wow!

Gazelle Molestation When we came upon this newborn gazelle and its mother, our guide estimated that it was less then three hours old. The baby became momentarily separated from its mother and this young buck instantaneously tried to mount the child. The mother returned seconds later and the buck quickly retreated. This image documents the fact that child molestation occurs in at least one species in addition to humans. Likewise, for me it raises the question of how many other species indulge in this behavior? And, are young animals wounded pschycologically in the way young humans are when the behavior occurs?
