This 6 month old female leopard’s mother was attempting to keep hyena off the kill. She was successfully doing so until a second hyena showed up. During the entire drama with the hyena, this young lady and her sister watched. The kill was stolen, but the mother managed another kill later in the evening and the cubs were fed. Both she and her sister both survived and raised cubs of their own.
