Moments earlier a hyena made off with most of her kill - a young impala. The leopard did not protest, discretion being the better part of valor.

Leopards are the best hunters in the delta, succeeding some 80% of the time. Lions have an 20% success rate. Hyena poach when they can; hunt when they must.
