Brave Wildebeest Tries To Save Calf From Leopard

This incredible footage was filmed by 12 year old Muhammed in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.

The brave mother wildebeest does her best to keep the leopard away, but eventually all is lost. In her frantic efforts to get the calf to its feet it looks, at times, like she is trying to hurt the calf.

Despite her brave efforts, the leopard bides its time and eventually gets what it wants. This video was uploaded to Kruger Sightings on Youtube.
