Wow! It makes me wonder how many similar inter-species interactions occur every day, that we never know about. Fascinating!

Fabulous blog today with the wild dog/leopard back-and-forth. How fortunate to be present when this happened, and even more so to get it on film. Thank you.

What a great sighting! I found myself laughing that the leopard and wild dog were both doing a dance around each other so to speak. Since they both ultimately participated in the hunt, I’m glad they both got to enjoy some of the bounty.

Wow! What an exciting afternoon you had. Good to know they each had a meal from this opportune kill, or I suppose accidental kill.

Do we know if the wild dog has a pack? I’ve recently heard the story about Solo, the wild dog that has been leaving by herself, having hyenas and coyotes as allies. She actually helped coyotes raise their pups. She hasn’t been seen since 2014… I was so deeply touched by her story. Consequently, I was wondering if that dog is her. BTW, great footage!!! thank you for sharing!!

Sean, Great story! Amazing how fast the leopaord was moving. I’m sure the impala had no chance!

What a great opportunity….seeing the interplay between these two predators for the kill. In the end they both enjoyed a bit of a good meal, although I’m sure that usually isn’t the case. What a great video!
