Description: A pair of jackals had just killed the gazelle's fawn and the mother was still trying to drive off the attackers.

Story from behind the lens: A pair of jackals roamed the grassy savannah in search of prey. A fawn had hidden in the long grass, unfortunately without success. The jackals captured the kizz and the mother looked on helplessly. Again and again the mother tried to attack the jackals so that they would let go of their prey, but any help came too late for the fawn. Unfortunately, nature is sometimes cruel.
