    WOW! So what behavior do we attribute to the #thomsons-gazelle? I don't think any of them apply.

    Absolutely superb #lion find! Rare to see with #kill in middle of camera, also interesting (tommy not the most usual prey) 😃

    P.S. In classifying for tommy I would mark 'resting' and also 'interacting' to describe situation 😃

    Wonder if the lion took that from a cheetah?

    That possibility indeed came also to my mind, lions do scavenge from cheetah, hyena,leopard if opportunity, but they do also hunt gazelles,

    especially in areas/at times of year when bigger prey not present. So we can't know, but anyway carcass seen like this is always nice
