We happened to notice that an unlucky wildebeest had been bitten by a crocodile on its right hind hoof.
At this time, the wildebeest used all its strength to drag the crocodile to the shore, because the crocodile on land it could not bring out its full strength.
The two sides struggled for up to 10 minutes, at this time we see that the wildebeest is also exhausted.
