African wild dog (Lycaon pictus), gemsbok (Oryx gazella)

PASSAN PURSUED BY HYENA DOGS. The Passan is a strong, active and peculiarly marked Antelope having its home in southern Africa. In the same region live the Hyaena Dogs or Cape Hunting Dogs (Canis pictus), and the is Passan frequently picked out by these fierce canine animals as a victim. The pack of Dogs pursues the Antelope, which flees with utmost speed but is finally overcome by superior numbers, although it may kill several of its pursuers with its sharp horns before it is finally conquered. A lull account of such a scene as here depicted will be found on page 190. (Oryx capensis.)
