Great wildlife experience and sad for the Duiker lamb.We encountered a virtual identical experience at Ulusaba 5 years ago when a young leopard caught a days old baby duiker and toyed with it for 45 minutes before eventually killing it. The distress calls of the young duiker were hard to hear and see and some people in the landrover wanted to leave the scene. The distress calls also brought out the mother who showed up and glared at the leopard but also eventually left after a short standoff.I have lots of photos documented that event.

HI SHAUN,
A WONDERFUL STORY AND AN AMAZING SIGHTING!
YES, IF ONLY WE KNOW/KNEW WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WILD WE WOULD BE ASTOUNDED.
AS HUMANS WE SOMETIMES THINK WE KNOW, OR HAVE SEEN IT ALL, BUT IT TAKES A SIGHTING LIKE THIS TO MAKE ONE REALISE HOW LITTLE WE KNOW.
THANKS FOR THE STORY AND TO YOUR GUEST WENDY FOR HER GREAT PICTURES.
SEE YOU SOON.
KIND REGARDS,
TED.
