This page contains graphic pictures and videos of jackals eating a baby gazelle. The video at the end of this page shows how brutal nature can be sometimes.

In the past I have usually seen black-backed (or silver) jackal. This was my first  encounter with the brown jackal. We came across a male-female pair just as they killed a very young Grant’s gazelle.

These jackals look just like coyote

The jackals are bonding with each other as they revel over their prey.

As the gazelle mother circled they aggressively defended their meal

When the mother got her courage up she chased one of the jackals

The other jackal continued to feed, now without being harassed by the gazelle
