04 August 2016 at Dertiende, 3 Spotted Hyena killed a pregnant Gemsbok.
- in anticipation of some (possibly) leaner days, they dropped/hid the foetus and a rack of ribs in the water.

Cheers, Ian

AVIATION IN ITSELF IS NOT INHERENTLY DANGEROUS, BUT TO AN EVEN GREATER DEGREE THAN THE SEA,
IT IS TERRIBLY UNFORGIVING OF ANY CARELESSNESS, INCAPACITY OR NEGLECT.
