Bradley Ballantyne, 46, captured the sighting while driving home on Olifants Street in Martloth Park, just outside the Kruger National Park.

 

 

After seeing this video, we definitely wanted to find out more, so Bradley told LatestSightings.com: “On my way home from having lunch at one of the local “Watergats” (waterholes), I turned the corner and noticed a wildebeest displaying unusual behavior, goring away at something on the ground. I immediately grabbed my phone to record what was happening. As I got closer I could not believe that it was another wildebeest on the ground, which certainly looked dead, at least to me, as it was showing no signs of life.

 

 

I kept recording, and to my amazement the “dead” animal got to its feet and they both ran away. The animals bolted past my car, I drove after them for a few seconds but they ran into thick bush and was unable to follow them.”

 

 

Bradley continued: “I have been visiting Marloth Park for 30 years, seen lions and elephants in the park and many interesting animal behaviors but nothing like this. This all happened very quickly and was obviously very exciting for me.

Although, it all only really sank in then I replayed the video a few minutes later. Sadly, I got to hear from a reliable source in the park that the animal that was being gored had to be euthanized by the game rangers due to the extent of it injuries and its inability to walk properly.”
