Hundreds of lifeless wildebeest were spotted this morning in the Mara River in northern Serengeti, Tanzania. The sad sight was captured on phone cameras by safari guides.

The images below can only be described as tear-jerking. The pile of carcasses stretches into the distance and scavenger birds have already started circling the wildebeest.

According to our source on the ground, the authorities have been contacted and the exact cause of death has yet to be confirmed. If the past is anything to go by, the wildebeest chose a crossing point that was too deep.

As an African travel operator with a love for our continent and wildlife inhabitants, the incident saddens us deeply and is a reminder of what happened in 2007 when 10,000 wildebeest died in a mass drowning.

I think it more the fault of all the vehicles that are forcing the animals to use different area's to cross than what they normally do to get great shots :evil: :evil: :evil:

Was thinking the same, RP...

And also, the water really doesn't seem to be too deep -O- I'm inclined to go with PR's opinion. O/
