Dramatic Moment Wild Dogs Determined To Send Pride Of Lioness Away In An Eternal Feud
It’s a feud that has gone on since the dawn of time.
And dramatic scenes show a lioness and group of wild dogs re-enacting the age-old argument of dog versus cat – and this time, the cat wins.
The impressive photographs show a group of five vicious-looking wild dogs circling a snarling lioness.
But the lioness refuses to let herself get intimidated and fights back, baring her enormous teeth and letting out a mighty growl before killing one of the wold dogs.
This results in the rest of the dog pack ‘beating up’ the lioness, leaving her with scrapes all over her body before finally backing off.
With an almighty snarl, the dogs finally began to realise they may have met their match in the stunning creature.
Photographer Odumetse Modikwa took the dramatic quarrel pictures at Chitabe Camp in Botswana.
The photographer and safari guide was guiding guests when he captured the stunning photographs.
Mr Modikwa claimed that it is very rare for such a small pack to take on a lion and that sometimes even a pack of 30 will run at the sight of one.
He said: ‘Wild dogs normally back off – they took great exception to one of the sub-adults being killed that they launched an attack while it was still alive in hope of rescuing it – sadly its fate was already sealed.
‘It is very, very rare to see this. While it no doubt happens, this is witnessed so rarely across Africa and this may very well be the best set of images documenting this behaviour.’
