Another example of ‘patience paying off’! What a fantastic sighting, Pete! I could feel the excitement as I read the story. The video was terrific too. When the dogs kill, the meal does not take long!

Wow! What an amazing sighting. It seems like these events are impossible the way they unfold often when you have been patient but are just ready to give up. Surprised and yet never surprised by what develops while on drive at Londolozi. Wild dogs leopard and a kill.

A pack of wild dogs is definitely a killing machine, unlike any other kill I’ve seen. I’m surprised that the leopard found any scraps to take for his own, as usually the victim is dismembered and picked clean. I witnessed a kill by several dogs on a warthog last year and will never forget the sounds and the frenzy that accompanied this event. Needless to say, there was nothing left – even the vultures did a fly by…… what an exciting morning and yes, breakfast can always wait!!
