By definition, a “poach” is a style of hunting that nabs prey meant for others, reallocating it to yourself.
Sometimes the prey might be held in reserve (to eat later) and sometimes another predator might be ingesting it mid-poach (this last being the more challenging type of poaching that only the most skilled poachers can pull off).
Here is rare and exciting frame-by-frame footage of a highly skilled mid-poach predator “doing his thing.”
