WATCH | Hippo tries to rescue pregnant impala from hungry hyenas and sneaky leopard
WARNING: Video not for sensitive viewers
A video shared by Latest Sightings proves that nature can sometimes not be inherently peaceful or serene.
In the video, a fight broke out when a hungry wild dog took on a pregnant impala that was rescued by a hippo, hunted by a hyena and stolen by a leopard.
The video was captured by industrial psychologist Gabi Hotz while on a game drive in Djuma Sabi Sand, Greater Kruger.

Explaining the sighting, Hotz said the unfortunate impala was not able to get out of the situation alive.
“The commotion caused by a herd of elephant nearby resulted in the feasting wild dog running to join the rest of the pack. This created enough of a distraction for the leopard to take the leap and steal the impala, pulling it into the tree, away from any hungry mouths.”
