@blackbackedjackal vs. their local vulture competitor!

I might be wrong here, but since this photo was taken in the Serengeti I would think it’s probably an African golden wolf (Canis anthus), not a golden jackal (Canis aureus), which to my knowledge doesn’t occur in Africa (all reported specimens having actually been misidentified specimens of C. anthus).
