Nature is brutal, but this story has a happy ending. A tawny eagle swooped down and bagged a small jackal pup in the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The mother jackal immediately chased after the eagle, which decided the pup was too heavy, or else was too much of a hassle with the mother chasing along. The jackal rescued the puppy and was able to hide it in a new den. The pup seemed to be unharmed. Still, it was not a good day for any of the three animals in the picture.
It was a good day for wildlife photographer Ateeb Hussain, Who was at the right place at the right time and captured the action. This amazing image made the weekly selection for Africa Geographic’s ongoing Photographer of the Year competition. We don’t know when the winners will be announced, but the winners themselves will be notified some time this month. -via reddit
