The hyena takes the spoils
During a recent visit to the Kruger Park, my family and I came across a young leopard with an impala kill in a tree south of Satara. A few moments later we noticed a hyena at the bottom of the tree. The hyena began to whine for the meat. Suddenly the impala started sliding down the tree. The leopard, not willing to lose its kill, grabbed the antelope and ran. The hyena pounced and a scuffle ensued. I took this photograph just before the fight began. Leopard and hyena were both unharmed, but the hyena was the ultimate victor. JACK STEYL (15), Franschhoek Jack’s sister Zara (13) made a video of the encounter. Watch it here: youtu.be/NCHapFl83Pc – Ed.
