| | The Fallen Steenbok | | We followed her for over an hour, as she called out vigorously for a potential mate nearby. Having recently lost her litter, she was in perusal of the dominant male to restart the process.
After some time with her, there was a brief moment of still, a split second and then she burst into full flight.
Before we knew what had transpired we could see the writhing body of this young steenbok in her strong jaws.
She was vigilant; the distress call would attract any nearby predator, and like clockwork, it happened.
A hyena was on her tail, but she was fortunate to have passed this Marula tree moments before making the kill. And like a magician with a wand, she was up the tree, her bounty now safe!
