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

Hi Gannet,

Indeed a unique sighting!! Quite gruesome, not for the fainthearted but this is how it works in the wild.
