A leopard taking home dinner

I was on my first African safari and we received reports that a leopard that we had spotted the night before had gotten a kill. Upon approaching, we realized that the carcass was too far from any trees and so the leopard was forced to take pieces of meat up this tree before the hyenas took the entire impala.
