This Leopard Makes Short Work of a Steenbok in Kruger National Park

Watch This Leopard Make Short Work Of This Steenbok In Kruger Park

This tiny steenbok in Kruger National Park didn’t have much of a chance once a leopard decided to turn it into lunch. Watch the video to see how it ends.

The steenbok is one of the smallest species of antelope in Africa and is a member of the Tiny 10 species of pygmy antelope. They are also an important food source for predators, especially leopards. These luckytourists in Kruger National Park managed to capture a successful stalk of a steenbok by a leopard on video.

As you can see in the video, things didn’t turn out well for the steenbok.

The leopard is a fearsome predator and the only real defense most animals have against it is to never let one get too close, which is much easier said than done.

The bottom line? Life is tough when you’re small, which is a lesson this warthog also learned a little too late.
