I think the Hyena was opportunistically taking advantage of the fact that the Leopard was distracted by killing the Warthog to take a chance for a feed. Very unique situation I had not seen before!

Misleading title, but interesting video nonetheless

I really find it perverse and sickening how people just stand there 7 feet away saying faeces like "oh now he's gonna rip the leg off *click click*". City people should stay in the city and country people naturally would have chased off both the hyena and leopard and killed (quickly) and ate the hog. This is just weird and macabre. Gross.

And you're brainwashed. We are nature. If there's a turtle upside down flapping its flippers pitifully, tip it upright, dont be an a - hole. "One must never interfere *click click click*", the sound of these peoples voices makes me sick, dumb subculture of brainwashed sanctimonious douches.

Woah. The guy who doesn't mind gribbing dogs attacking wildlife suddenly hates on people actually for once learning about nature and are actually interested it.

Okay, sure, humans are nature and by that argument are still part of nature and everything we make is natural. Nonetheless I would’ve expected you to at least get what I’m saying.
Flipping a turtle that’s on its back is a completely different scenario from splitting up two essentially human weighted carnivorans from their prey. One is and isn’t a predator-prey relationship. Or are you saying every time humans observe an animal killing another animal because it cannot properly eat vegetation and must eat meat instead we should interfere with an animal or in this case two trying to kill and not being killed?
Because if so you should say goodbye to your own source of meat and poultry.
This is not sick. This is how it has been since the dawn of predator and prey. To say it’s “sick” to turn effectively a blind eye to it isn’t wholly correct; often it is shocking and numbing to see something being killed. Bur arguing it’s inhuman to watch this happen and instead should save the animal you potentially save one life but make it that much harder for two others. What makes me sad personally is someone many years older than me showing a detrimental ignorance towards what happens every single day on the smallest to largest of scales saying we should save any animal a predator comes across and wishes to kill and eat.
