Battle at Kruger: water Buffalo verse lions verse crocodile!



I just saw this for the first time but almost 52 million have been lucky enough to see this. The tourists who watched this feel good survival fight unfold are the luckiest in the world. The lions 5 of them were winning to make a meal of the baby water Buffalo then it got worse when a crocodile grabbed the baby and tried to pull the baby back into the water as the lions tried to pull it out.

Then unbelievably the herd of Water Buffalo returned and started taking on the lions one at a time throwing them into the air trying to free the baby who was still struggling. You have never seen anything like this. The tourist who took this video was remarkably lucky to watch this unfold from beginning to end.

Thanks to the videographer almost 52 million have observed this remarkable feel good survival story unfold. Do yourself a favor and join them! This is phenomenal and I know it is human nature for some but I was disappointed to see the level this was capitalized on.

For whatever reason I couldn't play the video. I'll try again later.

Incredible footage Jim. Hurray for the buffaloes. It just shows that large numbers matter either in the wild or in your country. I am just totally amazed that that baby is still alive!
