What began as a fun day at the zoo ended with a lesson in the sometimes brutal nature of life.

A man accompanying a boy to the zoo caught the circle of life on camera when a snow leopard attacked – and devoured – a squirrel in its enclosure.

"Look, Justice, the tiger is coming to talk to you!" the man says excitedly, right before the big cat pounces on its prey.

"Oh no!" the man says, as he continues filming. "Oh, dear God, no."

The boy, meanwhile, appears pleased with the sight, smiling as he says, "Squirrel!"
