This jackel had been frightened off by a safari truck and had dropped the food he had just stolen away from the lions. Along came a crow, chased away by an eagle, chased away by this Lappet-faced Vulture. The battle began. The jackel kept returning over and over to fight for his food, but could not win against the large bird. Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania, Africa; August 2012.
