In this remarkable sighting, we see a young, unfortunate impala really have all the odds stacked against it. This impala got caught by a crocodile, and showed immense strength and determination to defeat the croc, but, seconds later, it then faces a much more difficult opponent - a hungry Leopard.
This unbelievable sequence of events was filmed by doctor and banker, Angela and Craig Weeks, on their most recent trip to the Kruger National Park, a few weeks back.

Angela and Craig tell the story: “We were watching a herd of impala drinking at a large muddy pond that had formed next to the road after recent heavy rains near Biyamiti Weir.
We had stopped to take a closer look at one impala that had a broken leg. Suddenly a 4-foot crocodile shot out of the water and grabbed a young impala, dragging it into the muddy water and submerging it.”
“A struggle ensued for about 2 minutes, but the impala was able to break free and jump out of the water. The impala herd had been alarm calling really loudly during the impala-crocodile struggle, which is basically a call for food for any predator in the area, as something most likely has just been caught. This time, a nearby Leopard heard the alarm calls and came to see if it meant a free meal for it.
The Leopard spots the impala in the water and doesn’t have to wait long. As the unlucky impala escaped the croc, it was ambushed and caught by the leopard.”
“We were shocked by the unexpected impala takedown and really surprised that a crocodile was lurking in such a small mud pool. When the impala eventually escaped the croc, we were relieved but seconds later totally surprised by the leopard’s stealth ambush. It was an unforgettable sighting and a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience for us.”
“After all the commotion, the leopard proceeded to consume the impala in the shade of a nearby fallen tree. We were able to watch this sighting with our 2 boys, 8 and 11, and their grandpa”

  • Damn and guys just sit there with your cameras watching this animal try to escape and breathing hard looking at you guys for help. You ever wonder why humans are dying from covid-19 and not animals. Its not a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Keep watching these poor animals who can't fight for their selfs get killed and see if you guys are in trouble one day someone will just watch you die by a human predator.
