This is a “Persistence Hunt” of a Male Kudu antelope by tribesman of the San in the Kalahari Desert of Africa, courtesy of BBC.

Running on two feet over long distances is more efficient than four. Man’s extra limbs can be used to carry water, the Kudu cannot and it collapses because of heat exhaustion.

The persistance hunt is considered one of the most ancient hunting techniques of all.

The hunter chases the kudu, which then runs away out of sight. By tracking it down at a fast running pace the hunter catches up with it before it has had enough time to rest in the shade. The animal is repeatedly chased and tracked down until it is too exhausted to continue running. The hunter then kills it at close range with a spear.
