Leopard with kill up a tree

This leopard had made a kill and dragged it up a tree to protect it from some other prey. He was keeping a close eye on it, coming down and going up. A hyena was circling the bottom of the tree getting some scraps. The big threat would be a lion, who would likely take it away. Amazing how every crumb of every kill is devoured, usually by several different species.
