Animals Video
wildebeests

By Ellie Duncombe 


Watch the brutal moment three wildebeests fiercely charge at each other over territory.

Catherine Van Eyk, 27, captured the tense footage at Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Two of the fully-grown mammals appeared to be ganging up on a third, as the video captures the shocking impact of a charge.

Catherine, a photographer, said: “It all happened very quickly, from start to finish it probably lasted around five minutes.

“One wildebeest was chasing another and then all of a sudden a third joined in on the action and head butted the first one from the side.

“It almost seemed as if it was two wildebeests against one, probably over territory.

“It was exciting to see although we got a fright when we saw the big blow, it just shows how powerful these animals actually are.”
