A leopard leapt high into the air during an epic bird-hunting fail in Kruger National Park in South Africa on July 19.

“While on safari in the Kruger National Park, we came around a corner and unexpectedly found a female leopard standing next to the road,” the filmer said.

“We saw movement in a thick bush down the side of the road and quickly realized that she was busy stalking birds called spur fowl,” the filmer said.

“Once the female leopard was close enough to attack, she suddenly charged straight at her target with great speed,” the filmer continued. “Two birds then amazingly burst into a noisy flight to escape.”

“The female leopard spectacularly leapt over two meters into the air in an attempt to grab one of the birds out of the air, narrowly missing her target,” the filmer said.
