Watch a puma battle a llama-like animal, with a surprise ending

A female puma stalked a male guanaco for more than an hour waiting for the right moment to pounce. Separated from its herd, the guanaco, a South American mammal related to llamas, began to graze. The puma leapt, grabbing the guanaco in its powerful jaws, attempting to crush its neck. While the puma hung on, the guanaco slammed its body weight onto the cat, enabling it to escape.
