Jackal vs lappet-faced vulture

This jackal must have thought it had got a free meal until this lappet-faced vulture, just one of its wings as long as the jackal, swooped in to steal the jackal’s bone.  The 7kg bird flapped its massive wings in an attempt to scare of the jackal but this was the day of the jackal. The feisty animal clung to the wildebeest bone, which was nearly as long as itself, not willing to give it up to the massive bird.  The bone was really big enough fore the two powerful predators but decided to fight over it as it was not in a very generous mood.  The fight was captured by German wildlife photographer Ingo Gerlach in the Masai Mara in Kenya.
