Zebra crossings stalled by crocodile attack

HerdTracker update 19 Aug 2015 by Governors’ Camp

Hi Carel,

Another good evening yesterday at the main crossing in that there was a potentially good crossing of zebra at 5:00 p.m going from east to west, but it was stalled due to a crocodile attack on a mare and her foal.

She fought the crocodile off although suffered a broken le
g. She crawled to the east bank into some rocks, A leopard who was in the croton thickets seized the opportunity and killed the zebra mare and started to eat. A few minutes later, three crocodile tried to size the zebra carcass from the leopard. 

A good evening of photography and action. The movement of zebra at the moment are suffering heavy mortality rates due to the amount of crocodiles.

Thanks,
Patrick
