This video, filmed by Daniel Tjärnén, shows a male zebra’s intent on trying to kill a rival’s zebra foal in Etosha National Park, Namibia.  

Tjärnén, who is a railway worker, captured the clip during his holiday, and describes the moment as a “once in a lifetime sighting!”

He explains to LatestSightings.com: "We were driving up to this waterhole, hoping to get some good sightings and especially hoping to see some predators."

As with mother-nature, trying to predict what you'll see in the bush is never easy. Most often than not, you are way off!

"Instead of predators, we saw this dazzle of zebras drinking from the waterhole. We suddenly noticed that the one zebra was actively attacking a young foal. First, it was a bit shocking but then I thought - it's the way of nature”.

Daniel immediately started filming and sent the video into Latest Sightings’ Film and Earn Program!

According to Tjärnén, some of the people with him reacted differently and wanted to help the zebra baby.
"After a long battle between the male, mother and foal, the zebras disappeared behind the trees."

Tjärnén speculates: "It probably wasn't his baby and felt threatened that it would grow up and take over the territory. I think it survived for the time being, but it looked injured. Maybe it was chased off or killed later on by a passing predator."
'Infantacide common practice'

News24 helped us with some research, and they asked a Sabi Sabi game ranger, Richard de Gouveia, to explain this darker side of the Zebra. De Gouveia says that the violence is to show "dominance in the harems". A herd is usually made up of one dominant male, who can have as many as 6 females and their foals in the group. Younger males with no harem would form bachelor herds and wait until they are big enough to start their own harem.

De Gouveia explains further that "Zebra stallions will fight with each other to win over females and will even go as far as stealing females from one another.”

"If the female which is stolen is pregnant, the new male will rape her until such time as she has aborted the pregnancy. Abortion would be done by releasing hormones that would cause her body to reabsorb the fetus or miscarry or if she gave birth to a live foal it would be kicked to death by the male."

This would explain the seen in Etosha as featured by Latest Sightings, with De Gouveia saying, "It ensures that the strongest genetics survive and the killing of another male's young is not an uncommon practice in the animal kingdom."

This video is great if you put it on mute. The bitch in the background should be shot to shut her ass the fuck up!
Its not his own offspring. A zebra stallion usually has a harem of mares and if another stallion takes over a harem because the previous stallion was overthrown or died, the new stallion on instinct alone will kill any foals he knows he didn't produce with the mares.

Meanwhile, the rest of the female zebras are whispering, "There goes crazy old Mike! He's just like his father...a couple a drinks and he's meaner than a junk yard dog."

I know zebras can be pretty vicious but why was it trying to kill a baby? It's not like it was gonna eat it or something.
Eva marie

"Why isn't somebody doing something!?"

Well they better not to, that would be interfering with the nature, and in a conservation park no less.

But interesting video, thanks!

As in lion's pride , the new leader kills of the defeated off spring, so the female would go in to heat and have his the next generation.
I so sorry that the young ladies witness such brutally.
but more sad we have heartless humans with the ability to post.
