Wild dogs fight over a warthog head after a hunt in the Okavango Delta.

We followed three separate wild dog hunts on my remote safari trip to the Okavango Delta. These wild dogs caught a warthog and devoured it whole, this was towards the end of the kill when they began to tug on the head of the animal.
