A Brave Buffalo Mother Defends Her Calf From Lion

This incredible footage, filmed in Timbavati Private Game Reserve, in South Africa, shows a buffalo doing all she can to protect her baby from a lion attack. The lions are driven off numerous times, only to persistently return moments later. Eventually she is out-numbered and the baby buffalo is caught. Now she has to fight for her life…

Unfortunately the baby does not make it, but after the rest of her herd return, the mother makes it to safety. This was filmed by Benjamin OT (Makanyi Lodge) and uploaded to Kruger Sightings on Youtube.
