The lion was gored into the air for the crime of hunting buffalo in front of a herd of more than 600 buffalo

This interesting scene was recorded at the MalaMala game reserve, Mpumalanga province, South Africa.

In the clip, a herd of about 600 buffaloes is moving near the river to drink water. Seeing the opportunity to come, the two lions cautiously watched from afar. When the whole herd was losing focus, 2 lions immediately rushed to attack.

Seeing the lion rushing, the buffalo immediately ran away. However, a slow-moving buffalo was caught by a lion. Although alone, the buffalo still tried to fight back fiercely.

While the buffalo was almost defeated by the lion, the other two buffaloes in the herd turned back to knock the predators and rescue their fellows. Right after that, all 3 buffalo quickly left, leaving 2 predators watching in regret because they lost their delicious bait.

The African buffalo is a herbivore but has a muscular body. They are known as the “buffalo of death” or the “black death”. Their “brutal” and unpredictable temperament makes them especially dangerous. If angry, buffalo is ready to fight even with large predators such as lions.
