Sable antilope kills porcupine
This sable antilope was found in the morning walking lame with a porcupine needle in her leg. She clearly won the fight: a porcupine was found dead close the her in the same morning. The female sable antilope was immobilized and the needle was removed. The wound was washed and antibiotics and a painkiller were given. Soon after treatment she was walking well again.
