    Two Cape Buffalo Die Fighting

    These two Cape Buffalo were found dead in Mountain Zebra National Park (South Africa) after apparently battling and their horns became interlocked... I actually once came upon two Kudu that had become interlocked like this, one was already dead and the other one was almost dead so I put him out of his misery... too bad I did not have a camera.
