An incredible video has emerged which shows buffalo taking on a lion in a fight to the death.
Lions normally prey on buffalo. The latter’s large size ensures that several members of the pride can fed with just one catch. Although much smaller in size, the big cats are natural predators of buffalo, so usually they keep away from the pack.
However, a video has gone viral that shows buffalo taking their revenge on an elderly lion. Cameraman Nick Chevallier happened upon a group of them turning the tables on a male who had previously tried to hunt them. “It was an incredible sight’ says Chevallier, “I have never personally witnessed such a brutal, powerful event.” As well as being elderly, it is thought that the lion was unwell, hence being an easy target for the buffalo.
