Hyena Zebra head

Early one morning on our game drive in the park we came across three spotted hyenas walking along the road. One the hyenas was carrying the head of a Zebra presumably from a lion kill nearby walking straight toward us. We followed the zebra for a while hoping it will lead us to the den because obviously it was carrying the food to the den.
