The clip was recorded by visitors at Mara Serena Safari Lodge, Maasai Mara National Reserve.
Specifically, a Topi antelope is being attacked by 5 cheetahs and then tries to knock it down. However, when the cheetahs were struggling with their prey, a spotted hyena suddenly appeared.
Being disrupted by the hyenas, the cheetahs immediately let go of their prey and ran away. Taking advantage of this opportunity, the antelope immediately counterattacked and “turned the tide” and had an unbelievable escape. Perhaps if they waited patiently for the cheetahs to kill their prey, the hyenas would benefit from this.
The hyena is considered one of the most greedy carnivores on land, able to kill large animals such as zebras, wildebeest, wild buffalo… However, hyenas rarely kill themselves. go hunting but mainly follow other predatory animals such as lions, leopards… to get food.
In addition, hyenas like to fight and steal prey from leopards because with their slimmer and smaller bodies, leopards often run away when adult hyenas approach.
