Baboons versus leopard
We find a heavily bleeding baboon in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park. His troop is making loud alarm calls. It turned out that the baboon had attacked the cub of a female leopard and the leopard had subsequently wounded the baboon.
Our guide was convinced that the leopard would return once she had brought her cub into safety. We waited for a little over an hour and indeed he was right.
The baboons were in vain trying to protect their friend.
In the meantime a group of Zambian school kids on school excursion had arrived at the scene.
While I was capturing the expressions of the kids one of the troop baboons bit in the tail of the leopard. A shot I missed but my 13 year old daughter captured it on video.
The sound at the end of the video is the sound is a jeep getting a flat tyre.
