    1. I understand the general perception of savagery, don’t agree with it, except in what humans do, In nature nothing should be considered savage,, all wildlife do what they have to do to survive. Us humans are given survival on a plate,, the days of hunting and gathering for the majority long gone.
      Thinking how to put it anther way, yes cruelty, does not occur with/in nature, now think about all the cruelty us humans commit, all manner of it, to me that’s blatant savagery. Sincerely hope I haven’t offended you, certain not my intention, my apologies if I have.
