This is surely a scenario that few people have experienced . . . we we're having supper one evening arround a burnt out fire at a freezing Nossob a number of year ago when lamb chop bone fell from Susan's plate into the sand. . . . one of the three or four jackal, that were lying some meters away watching our every movement, made his move and came slowly creaping up to the bone in the sand . . . the last half-a-meter was a quick dask and grab . . . and I was very lucky to get such a clear shot with the flash.

Luckily these 'intruders' (near pests !) have been stopped by electric fences arround the camp subsequently . . . this pic is from our website http://www.reddune.info/
