Hyena on the Lookout
On the morning after we witnessed the Cheli Pride feasting on a zebra kill, we returned to the kill site to see if there was anything left, or any activity.
A hyena or two had been on the scene, and this fellow, by now in the distance, had grabbed a piece of what little was left, and trotted off into the plains a little further away.
While the predation of an animal is nature's way in the wilderness, and at times difficult to watch or accept, nothing goes to waste, and one animal's demise represents the continued survival of other species. It is a fine balance, but it works.
