    Unedited material.

    i) Shots of an antelope standing in a zoo enclosure. It eats something from the ground then turns to look at the camera. M/S of head and body. C/U of the head. Camera follows head down as the antelope nibbles grain from the enclosure floor. ii) Baby antelope in a small zoo enclosure scrapes foot on the ground and looks at the camera. People looking at the antelope are seen outside the cage. Antelope walks around and sniffs things on the floor of the enclosure. A different type of antelope is seen in a small enclosure. A wall separates this enclosure from another, the antelope stands by the wall and on the other side another antelope does likewise. They seem to sense where each other are.

    M/Ss of antelopes as they eat. Top shot of head of antelope showing unusual antlers. Very different looking antelope comes out of a zoo building into an enclosure. It walks around looking at the camera. It wags its tail. It stands with two front feet in what is presumably a water trough. It eats something from the floor of the enclosure. Fluffy antelope in a zoo enclosure. Two shots. Antelope stands still and looks at camera.
