Africa is possibly the most diverse continent on the planet, offering white sandy beaches next to rugged mountains, luxury lodges on stunning landscapes and of course, the most incredible wildlife in existence.
Deep in the Sabie Sand reserve in South Africa, a lucky Australian photographer, Marc Mol, managed to capture the incredible photographs, to accompany an equally fascinating encounter. Trapped and seemingly left for dead, a hyena awaits mother nature to take her toll as a hungry pack of wild dogs gather round. However, what happened next surprised everyone, including the wild dogs.
The hyena snarled and began biting back at the wild dogs, eventually breaking their ranks.
In a split second, the hyena then made a break for the river .
The wild dogs were too afraid of the water and eventually gave up any hope of tackling the hyena again.
