Greater Kudu is a shy animal with exceptional concealment skills. A greater kudu will rely on fleeing if someone comes within 40 feet after giving a loud escape call. This call is one of the loudest sounds made by any antelope. In the wild, they only emerge from the thickest of forests and trees at night time to feed.
The long-term survival of these animals is not in jeopardy currently, as their populations are well-managed and adequately protected. But such incidences are continuously rising where kudu are being hunted for their glorious horns and high-quality meat, which need to be addressed as soon as possible.
