 An angry hippo was spotted chasing off a group of 12 wild dogs in a dramatic stand off at a watering hole.

 Renier Joubert, 61, captured the unusual antics in dramatic footage filmed at the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Renier said: “The guide told us that there were about 12 wild dogs at the waterhole and they were ticking off a hippo.

“I drove towards the place that he pointed out and there they were. It was my first wild dog sighting.

 “One dog was looking away from the hippo at an impala a way off, but then the one dog came closer and they lost interest in the impala.

“The hippo started chasing the dogs around outside of the water. He was very mobile for such a large animal.”
