A cheetah hunt down a gazelle. Before Hyenas stole leopard’s prey.
Keith Crowley travelled to the Ndutu plains. His pictures show the cheetah stalking. Its prey before chasing down the female Thompson’s gazelle. The mother manages to snare her prey.
Keith said: ‘It was thrilling to see the raw speed and stealth of such iconic animals. I saw two other kills before this one, but this is the only one where the gazelle ran towards me, it was incredible. Cheetahs are in a precarious situation right now as their habitat dwindles and I went to Ndutu specifically to see them in their natural element before they are gone. Witnessing four different kills, and the interaction between the cubs was an unforgettable experience. I feel incredibly lucky to have seen the things I saw in Tanzania
