    Honey Badger gets a boo-boo!!!

    Antelope sends honey badger flying in epic fight

    Maybe honey badgers do give a you know what.

    An epic fight between an antelope and a honey badger has gone viral after pictures emerged of the antelope sending the honey badger flying.

    The honey badger, known for being an aggressive animal, got into a tussle with an antelope at Etosha National Park in Namibia. After the oryx decided it had had enough of the honey badger, it used its prodigious horns to send the badger flying into mid-air.

    Does anyone else see a little photo manipulation? Possibly?

    Make that photo(s). Couldn't find the video this was suppositely taken from either. Maybe another poster can.

    From the story:

    The photographer who captured the incredible pictures at Etosha National Park, Dick Theron, said that the honey badger wouldn't give up the fight until the oryx decided enough was enough.
    I don't think there is video of the encounter. Only stills. The video referenced in the story was from 2011 is below:

    It's got to be Zefrank1, he's got the perfect tone for it.

    Don't mean to go all Columbo on anyone...

    Nothing definitive, but...

    There is a little too 'much' gray dust conveniently hiding the badger's shadow. While in one photo, the gray area clearly shows rocks and pebbles, the gray dust massively obscures in others.

    In at least 2 of the photos, the badger appears to have been transposed from a position on the ground to a spot midair. In 1 of them, the badger appears transposed and rotated slightly.

    I have nothing to 'prove' these photos have been 'shopped' and I am not going to declared them as such. I'm just a bit skeptical, that's all. My own opinion, as such.

    The video mentioned did not show any antelope/badger encounter as far as I could see.
