This jackal was lucky to escape with just a few scratches when she took on a feisty vulture for a scrap of food. The pair came to blows after the hungry mammal spotted the bird gnawing on a juicy bone and attempted to dash off with it. Determined to keep the tasty treat to itself the bird lashed out with its talons and the jackal was quick to retaliate with her sharp teeth. Despite nearly losing her eyes in the vicious battle, the jackal’s fierce determination paid off - she got to keep the stolen bone. This sight was snapped by Michael Hofmeyr as he hiked with his wife, Romy, in the Drakensburg National Park, South Africa
