We all know how brutal the animal world can be, but despite this scene looking like a deadly attack on this lone buffalo, this story just goes to show how animal packs are just as protective of each other as they are of themselves. When two lions began stalking this lone buffalo, spectators were shocked and filled with anticipation at what they knew was about to happen.
These gripping photos illustrating a story of desperation and raw hunger in the animal kingdom will absolutely stun you, but you will not be able to underestimate the big twist at the end of this tale...
The Brawl Between Beasts
It is a well known fact lions will hunt down buffalo for a good meal in South Africa, and that is exactly what tourist and photographer Oliver Lane witnessed whilst on safari in Hoedspruit at the Timbavati Nature Reserve. Whilst at the Umlani Bushcamp, Oliver Lane managed to get actual live footage of the fight, showing the true power of these beasts in the wilderness.
