Warning: The video that we are going to share below could be graphic to watch for some people, watch it on your own risk.
A video that is viral on the internet right now shows a mother duck sacrificing her own life so her ducklings could live.
A mother’s love is so pure that she is always ready to fight anyone and sacrifice her own life for their baby.
This is the unconditional love she has for her children and the video that we are going to share below is the best example of this.
The video that we are talking about was shared by Sudha Ramen, an Indian Forest Services (IFS) Officer, on Twitter, a social media website that can be used in India.

The video was shared with the title of: “They say the strength of motherhood is greater than the nature’s laws. A heartwrenching video,” Sudha captioned the video.”
In the video, dozens of ducklings and their mother could be seen inside a hole.
A snake then slithered down into the hole, ready to feast on the poor animals.
After sensing danger as the snake approached, the mother duck pushed her children out of the hole by flapping her wings.
She also shielded them from the reptile.
After the ducklings went into safe distance, the snake coiled itself around the mother duck.
The video that Officer Sudha Ramen sahred got over 70,000 views and over 3700 favorites on Twitter alone.
Netizens were left with a broken heart after watching the horrible video, which many people say is very hard to watch.
Here are some of the comments that were left on the video by social media users:
The photographer could have saved the mother and thus the chicks who will now surely die if(s)he had picked up a stone. Cruel lust for publicity. Obnoxious video.

The bird is a snake's natural food. What about humans indiscriminately killing animals and birds to satiate their palate? I am sure all those commenting as to why the cameraman did not save the duck must be enjoying their leg piece during a feast😔

Instead of taking this video should rescue the duck….
