Cheetah steals hyena’s food!

Hi Carel

Yesterday morning, only 1 km away from Rekero Camp, a hyena pulled down a topi. A few minutes later, Malaika and her three cubs pushed him away from his delicacy, which is quite rare and uncommon since its always hyenas which are documented stealing cheetah food!
