In the natural world, one animal killing another for food is a fundamental aspect of the food chain and ecosystem dynamics. This process is often referred to as predation, and it plays a crucial role in maintaining the balance and functioning of ecosystems.In line with the principles of ecosystem dynamics, a recent video depicting a dramatic confrontation between a buck and a wild dog in the African wilderness has been circulating on social media. This video, posted on YouTube, vividly illustrates the buck’s remarkable escape from the clutches of the wild dog.Latest Sightings shared the video with a caption that reads, “Desperate Buck Tries Drowning Wild Dog to Escape.”Watch the video here:”It all began with a lone wild dog chasing a female Nyala.
