The leading buffalo took the most opportunity of the year, saw the lion fighting and was injured, so he ran to butt one before running away

This is the intense moment 3 huge male lions began attacking a lone male, when the calls of distress from the lone lion attracts a nearby herd of buffalo. The herd storms in to the action, causing the attacking lions to flee.

But the luck of the lone lion goes worse when the buffaloes attack him too.

The lone lion died about a week after at a place called “Buffalo Pan”.
