This is the heartbreaking moment a giraffe tries to save her dead calf from a herd of hyenas in Greater Kruger – but it doesn’t give up or give up.
34-year-old tour guide Alexandra Olivieri shared about this stressful scene. She witnessed a giraffe go to great lengths to keep the hyena from devouring her calf, long after it was captured.
Ironically, we were just at the hyena den when we decided to investigate what vultures are attracted to. Landscape is something quite. We didn’t expect that a female giraffe in a fierce battle with hyenas could be found from the carcass of her (potentially) newborn calf.
It was a shock as we did not expect such a sight. The ferocity of the female giraffe is remarkable. I think that’s what shocked us the most – her growling and stomping on the hyena.
When we finally arrived, we saw a herd of hyenas eating meat. As the hyena social move unfolds, a male lion appears and steals the hyena’s carcass and proceeds to finish it off.
It is important to stay sensitive to the scene unfolding in front of you. Give the animals space to continue observing you as an observer without interfering or interfering with the observation.
