COMM: Game ranger Pieter Van Wyk has been tracking a pack of African wild dogs and they’ve
cornered a female bushbuck. COMM: As more dogs arrive, things are not looking good for the antelope. Man: Mother, if you start crying… COMM: Initially rescued by the hippo’s unlikely intervention, now the antelope is stuck in
the mud and the dogs return. COMM: The large male hippo has killed the antelope and thrown it clear off the mud,
leaving it as easy prey for the dogs. COMM: Hippos are among the most aggressive animals on the planet. And experienced ranger
Pieter thinks that after initially saving the antelope, the hippo simply became fed-up
with the invasion of his space.
