This is the intense moment a jackal hunts a marabou stork after swimming up to it – check out these epic photos! All of this, even after it got away when the jackal tried to kill it on land!
Wildlife enthusiast Christa Coetzee and a friend saw a jackal going for a marabou stork, but then lost it in the hunt. This absolutely incredible sighting happened in the Pilanesberg Private Game Reserve. Christa tells LatestSightings.com the story:
“We were making our way to a waterhole near Bakubung, as there is usually a lot of activity. We saw a black-backed jackal amongst marabou storks and some other animals. The jackal seemed interested in some of the birds.”
Not the small and easy birds to kill though – no this jackal was one brave and strong hunter. He went for a marabou stork!

“This was an utter thrill for me as I have never witnessed a kill of any sort in the wild!”
“By the end of it all, we lost sight of the jackal with its prize as the tall grass blocked our view. One really just has to be patient, when observing animals. Anything can happen at any time.”
