PHOTOS: Cannibal Leopard and Prey

Territorial leopards will occasionally kill and eat their younger competition, but it's rare to glimpse the act firsthand.

In shocking photos, a leopard can be seen pulling another leopard’s carcass out of a tree, presumably to eat it.

There are many examples of leopard cannibalism in the wild, and experts speculate on the likely causes. In the most common scenario, older male leopards will kill younger ones to ward off competition and stake their territory.
