It all happened on August 26, when at dawn, the park’s caretakers noticed a scene that they described on their official Facebook account as a “true frenzy.”

However, their delight did not last long, as soon, with the help of a mechanical crane, the dead giraffe was removed from the golf course, for which the herd of hyaenids had to withdraw from the site.

It is common to see animals there

The Skukuza golf course has 9 holes and 18 tees, in the middle of the renowned Kruger National Park, in South Africa. Therefore, it is normal to see wild animals in this place.

It was built in the 1970s on a disused airstrip and then opened to the public in 1999.

According to the DailyStar, the site’s caretaker, Jean Rossouw, described Skukuza as the “wildest countryside in the world.”

“An important part of my job is the early morning tour to make sure all of our guests have left and that it is safe for our members and guests to play,” he said.

Since the field is not fenced, uninvited spectators are a common sight: hippos, impalas, warthogs and baboons, to name just a few.

Precisely for the above, when entering to play golf, it is mandatory to complete a form regarding compensation, since wild animals abound in each hole.
