A mighty battle went down between two of Africa’s great carnivores, the African Painted dog and a crocodile.
She guessed that the painted dogs killed the impala at the water’s edge and the croc stole it from them. The painted dogs tried to get the carcass back but when one got too close, the crocodile snapped at it and the dogs backed off a bit.
The crocodile then took the impala further into the water, swimming up and down, passing the dogs with it in its jaws, as if almost teasing the dogs.
The painted dogs tried for over an hour to get it back before they gave up and went home without any dinner.
