These photographs show a Hyena being encircled by a troop of African Wild Dogs.
The Hyena is in a difficult situation, pushed up against the wall with nowhere to flee… The Hyena fought back, but she was outnumbered. The Hyena’s condition appeared to be hopeless… until it made a daring move.
The Hyena hissed at the Wild Dogs at first, but the dogs were plainly unaffected. It had to try something different… In an unexpected turn of events, the Hyena raced into the river!
The Wild Dogs appeared to be taken aback by the sight of the Hyena in the river and did not pursue it. Marc Mol, a 56-year-old Australian photographer, captured the incredible picture on film.
“The cackling and chuckling sounds of the hyena, combined with the snarls of the dog squadron, were incredible to behold,” he added.
“The scenario included eight wild canines terrorizing a lone hyena, and while such interactions are usually brief, this one continued for a long time.” “The hyena was trapped by high land on one side and water on the other, with dogs bearing down on him from all sides.”
“Eventually, the hyena decided it was best to take its chances with the hippo’s open jaws and sat it out in the water.” “Because wild dogs equate water with crocodiles, they kept their distance and ultimately became bored and slunk away to find something else to eat.”
