Astounding video where a man literally runs down a kudu, chasing it for 8 hours until it drops from exhaustion.

There is also an episode of This American Life that discusses this phenomenon. I haven't listened to it yet.

The wikipedia article on persistence hunting offers more illumination.

Once again: a tip of the hat to tywkiwdbi for finding this.
