A starving young lion certainly managed to get his claws into a tasty little snack. The awesome footage was captured on film in the Kruger National Park  by Graeme Mitchley (45), Deputy Principal at a School in Edenvale, South Africa!

The young lion carried the antelope down into the dry riverbed where we lost visual, but could still hear the antelope bleating. The lion went into the riverbed also because there were white-backed vultures, hooded vultures and marabou storks in the vicinity hoping to take off with the buck.

I think this was pure opportunism on the part of the lion as he must have stumbled upon the newborn whilst walking through the bush.

While the sighting was being played out, adrenaline was flowing! But watching the video, I could hear the little buck bleating, which wasn’t nice at all.
