Spotted hyenas with kudu carcass

Spotted hyenas with kudu carcass

The kudu had been killed in the evening, probably by a cheetah or leopard. After the predator had had its fill, the hyenas and jackals moved in to finish most of the job. But the dust-covered carcass was a prized possession, and the hyenas dragged it up the hill from the waterhole and into the bush.
