End Of The Animal Kingdom

By then, leadership in animal kingdom was reserved for Lions, even brought the slogan- King of the Jungle. Other animals in big cats’ family- Cheetahs, Leopards and Tigers- given ministerial seats as the remaining animals were civil servants and field workers.
All animals led their lives under rules governing the Kingdom. Punishment for lawbreakers, lazy workers, corrupt officials and cunning animals were normal occurrences and most animals agreed to such kind of treat.
Because of its vast and complicated nature of the Kingdom, it was difficult for leaders to pass judgement to those who infringe guidelines. Moreover, judgements were limited to the size of an animal in question because, a mouse’s punishment was not equal to that of an elephant. In this case, most small animals went scot-free.
Political wrangles and rebellion:
In a particular day, King Lion announced new rules in addition; he demanded every animal species to appoint a spokes leader. These were measures to keep informed also as a mean of eradicating rebels in the Kingdom.
It happened that, cats avoided King’s call and did not appear in the meeting. Only the appointed ministers were present, later sacked from their positions by an angry Lion King.
Rebellious cat’s secret meeting insider revealed the formation of a coalition government lead by the Tigers. The news spread like bush fire to all animal communities, Lions too. It was a celebration for some animals but others proved loyalty to the Lion King.
Tension spread in the Kingdom, no animal had ever seen an angry Lion King. ‘Grreeeee, Grreeee,’ the King Roared. All animals took caver. Fear, suspense, hopelessness were only feelings  almost all animals experienced.
A messenger went round the Kingdom delivering the King’s last chance of loyalty, or to face the worst.  
As immunity from the King’s wrath, almost all-herbivorous type went to the Lion King’s side, but the remainder stood on ground with their rebellion.
Split of the Animal Kingdom:

Upon this division, war broke out between the King’s loyal subjects and the rebels. Since, herbivorous animals fear wars; they provided war supplies and food for the fighters. However, food became so scarce that they could hardly get any, but the demand for food from both warring sides intensified.
Having no any other means of getting food, the carnivorous ones started attacking and killing herbivorous type for food. This infuriated the herbivorous animals but they had nothing to do. There inferiority made them an easy prey –no power to defend themselves-, they had only three options- the stronger to fight, the taller to warn and the weak to run- but their main defense was to walk in large groups.
This is the reason all big cats family fight among themselves, the lions roar when angry and hungry and lastly this is why the herbivorous animals are hunted for food & always mingle amongst themselves in large groups in Maasai Mara.
