    Buffalo with injured calf    
buffalo calf injured broken ankle limping kruger africa
Injured buffalo calf, Kruger NP

This was a really touching sighting. The calf had a broken left rear ankle, and was struggling to keep up with the herd, as it moved towards water. The mother kept slowing down and waiting for it - however, it was clearly torn between its maternal urges and its instinct to stay with the herd.

She kept moving with the herd, but slowly. Unfortunately, the calf was even slower and kept getting further and further behind. Finally, it was alone, save for its frenzied contact bleatings.
