Impala Escapes Crocodile Only to Get Caught by Leopard

Out of the frying pan, into the fire… Or in this case, out of the crocodile’s grip, into the leopard’s belly!

Incredible footage captures the moment an unlucky impala was attacked by a crocodile, and then managed to escape — only to be attacked by a leopard immediately after.

The incredible footage was captured by Angela and Craig Weeks on their most recent trip to the Kruger National Park.

“We were watching a herd of impala drinking at a large muddy pond… Suddenly a 4-foot crocodile shot out of the water and grabbed a young impala, dragging it into the muddy water and submerging it,” Angela told LatestSightings.com. “As the unlucky impala escaped the croc, it was ambushed and caught by the leopard.”

“It was an unforgettable sighting and a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us.”
