shows animals killing other animals, not for kids or soft hearted people

how could this be rated 6+?? where is the common sense in that? my kids 9+ was heartbroken and crying, we stopped the movie and dismissed it. Even my wife could not watch it.

Very violent

We took our 2 and 4 year olds to see this as their first theater experience. The G Rating was very misleading. Sure it was nature, but they seemed to focus the movie on natural violence. We stayed for half of it and it was terrifying. It had scary, intense music playing as baby iguanas tried to escape giant snakes, watching the life being squeezed out of them. Magnified bees attacking humming birds. Giraffes battling it out with loud thumps as they slammed heads and necks. The baby zebra who almost drowned and washed downstream in a raging river, while it's mom yelled for it. I'm sure it is fine for older kids but mine had nightmares after this.
