Poor Kudu Hits The Dust

No sooner had we sat down to lunch when our driver came rushing in….very excited. Said we must come quickly because the lioness that had lurking in the bushes had taken down large kudu buck. They used to bite the neck so as to strangle the animal but the sharp horns can be a problem so this lioness was biting the groin area on both sides so as to paralyze the buck. Definitely not for the squeamish! It was just awful hearing bones crack.
Once she knew this buck was going no where she went to fetch her cubs. Several hours the four of them were having a royal feast. It took the kudu six or so hours to die. This one kill was all Gord and I ever wanted to experience.
