Rare footage of two leopards fighting in the Pilanesberg on June 22 over prey has emerged, showing the carnivores engaging in a dramatic battle.

The video starts off showing one leopard attempting to kill a warthog. But before the warthog goes down, another leopard enters the scene and a battle over the prey ensues.

The warthog managed to escape while the leopards fought it out.

It is unclear if any of the animals were seriously hurt.
