The cub has become a lure for larger game.

Guide Kruger National Park Nick Coleman (Nic Coleman) took video of the amazing behavior of a female leopard. Caught the baby antelope, she played with the victim like a cat with a mouse – perhaps hoping to lure the mother closer.
A valuable video has been removed by accident. Nick and the other Rangers were driving along the river, watching a herd of elephants when he heard cries at a distance. Turning back, they found the predator and its prey.
Duiker, or antelope crested, feature miniature size: depending on species, they can weigh up to 70 kg, and only 3. These fragile and timid African animals prefer dense thickets – but even there they cannot escape from leopards.
However, the baby Duiker is too small a sacrifice. Before killing him, the leopard for 45 minutes waiting to see if the female is closer – but she kept 50 metres away. The idea of the hunter is not managed; after the brutal fun, he ate his prey.
No matter how terrible these pictures – they clearly show the food chain, developed over centuries of evolution.
