It's not uncommon for videos and photos to circulate via social media, of mature deer or elk who've locked antlers while aggressively and fiercely fighting during the rut. Usually these moments are happened upon by hunters, who are happy to assist in the untangle. Today's share however, has quite a different ending.
Captured by Empaps M Sayialel, from Kenya Maasai Land, two wildebeest locked horns and ultimately one died of injuries sustained from a cackle of hyenas who saw an easy opportunity and moved in.
"This was amazing scene. Two male wildebeest locked there horns to each other, the hyenas killed his partner and began eating while the other one is looking and he can't run or help himself." Nature can be beautiful and cruel!
