Seeing their fellow human being surrounded and bitten by dozens of lions, the herd of wild buffalo rushed to the rescue, causing the predators to “escape for people”.
This dramatic confrontation was recorded by a visitor to Serengeti National Park. In the clip, when discovering a herd of wild buffalo wandering in the grasslands, the lions sought to approach
then grabbed a male buffalo.
Despite their superiority in numbers, the lions still could not take down their prey as easily as they had calculated.
Meanwhile, when continuously attacked and stalked by predators, buffalo immediately launched fierce counterattacks. He was determined not to let the lions defeat him because he knew that if he was knocked down by a predator, death would come easier for him.
However, after struggling for a while, something unexpected happened. When hearing the cries of their fellows, the herd of wild buffaloes rushed to rescue the member in distress. Seeing that the enemy was too large, the lions immediately “ran away and ran for people”, pitifully letting their prey escape.
The African bush buffalo, also known as the Cape buffalo, is one of the Big Five, along with the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, and elephant. This buffalo can weigh 1,000 kg. Buffalo is widely distributed in eastern and southern Africa and is not an endangered species.
