Blackbacked Jackal (Canis mesomelas)

And then this blackbacked jackal quickly crossed the road in front of us. He was carrying something, apparently coming from the scene in the distance. As there were some bushes between the road and the scene, we did not see him coming earlier, so we were quite surprised when he sat down roughly 5 meters (16 ft) in the grass to enjoy whatever he has been carrying. Too bad, we could not identify what he was eating.
