Noisy Hyenas on a Zebra carcass – Laikipia, Kenya 2023

Noisy Hyenas on a Zebra carcass. We came across this very noisy and large clan of hyenas on a Zebra carcass near Laikipia Wilderness Camp, Kenya. There was a single young male lion near by and we surmised that the lion (or lions) had taken down the zebra but that this large hyena clan had forced them of the kill and were enjoying the spoils for themselves. They were very noisy and spent as much time chasing each other around as eating. The tiny jackals tried their hardest to steal scraps whilst the chaos ensued. Quite a comical sight! It was amazing to hear them crunching on the bones of the unfortunate zebra.
