Hyena feeding with wild dogs at Chitabe camp in the Okavango

Hyena and dogs

Just when you think you have seen most things, the bush, throws you a curve ball. Hyenas are known for being major competitors with wild dogs and interaction between the 2 species around a kill is intense. Except this morning when this small pack of 3 dogs pulled down this yearling impala and 2 hyenas arrived, 1 held back, bit this character simply joined in the feast. At a later stage the wild dogs no longer tolerated the hyenas company and some serious bum biting took place.
