The sight of wild dogs hunting antelope caught the camera of Jacques Proust at Sabi Sands nature reserve, South Africa. When he discovered this sight, Jacques was very excited and slowly walked towards it in a sightseeing car. He surveyed the bushes and noticed a male antelope standing there.
I know wild dogs will have a hard time taking down antelope alone. But suddenly, the second and third predators appeared. The antelope tried very hard to fight back, but the end of being eaten was inevitable.
The strategy of the wild dogs and the resistance of the male antelope are both amazing.
