13 Oct 2014. Spotted hyaenas. A group of four spotted hyaenas killed an adult male Oryx 5 km south of Amp’s Poort (photos: top row). This is an unusual observation because spotted hyaenas do not usually occur this far west. Single animals occasionally move through the area, but groups and active hunting have not previously been recorded. The Oryx carcass was also visited by an adult Verreaux’s (Black) eagle that scavenged on the remains (photos: bottom row).
