March 28 (UPI) -- A family of lions was caught on film catching and killing a heron at the Artis Royal Zoo in Amsterdam.

The Inquisitr reports the clip was originally taken in February of 2012, but was reposted on YouTube Thursday with the following description:

“This Dutch family was visiting the zoo on a quiet Sunday afternoon when things got a bit more exciting than seeing bored animals lying around their enclosures. A lion spots a heron near the water. Following her instincts she sneaks up on it and manages to grab it. The whole family wants in on the prize, but a sneaky cub gets away with it.”

Naturally, the clip went viral.

If you can stomach watching a heron get killed by a bunch of lions, you can watch the original video, with over one million views, below.
