A female leopard takes down an impala by Martha van Rensburg
The famous Langklaas leopard of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa was visited by a lone lioness and her young cub, a day before she passed away. Whilst it’s common for lions to kill leopards, especially their cubs, this lioness decided to leave Langklaas be. The leopard, who was in very bad condition, died on the 8th of May 2014, after a suspected infection caused by an undelivered placenta. She was eight years old.
