The brothers, known locally as Flappy Left Ear and Junk Left Ear, killed the large eland the day before yesterday and have been feeding on it since. They take turns leaving its side to drink or sleep, but one always guards it from the hungry vultures and hyenas that remain ever present. #campaignfornature
