Broken backs and legs

HerdTracker update 31 Jul 2014 by Governors’ Camp

Hi Carel – After watching wildebeests go back and forth to the cliff face debating whether to jump a baby was pushed off which kick started a crossing. Many broke their backs and legs, then the marsh pride of lions came waiting for them at the other side killing all the injured as well as many baby’s… everyone was hunting including the sub adult cubs, 9 wildebeest killed then a leopard turned up and began hunting too they were throwing themselves off a really high cliff face to jump into the water it was hard to watch. Our guides have never seen anything like it and we have been in the Mara 40 + years, I will send you the proper write up and photos when I get them. Photo credit Moses Manduku
