Scaredy Cat: Buffalo Foils Lion Attack By Puncturing Tyre


At Kruger National Park in South Africa these lions were looking for their next meal and they appear to have decided that i was going to be this buffalo - but they weren't prepared for the fight that ensued.

The buffalo managed to get rid of the first attacking lion using its horns as a weapon but he seemed unable to shake the second unwelcome lion off as he started to move towards one of the park tourist vehicles.

Having already flipped one lion, the buffalo found an ingenious way to shake off its second attacker - by using its horns to puncture a nearby car tyre.

The resulting loud release of air was enough to scare away the big cat, forcing it to release its vice-like grip and flee.

It may have been a lucky escape for the buffalo but the lions were also left with lasting reminders of their unsuccessful attack with one showing a gaping leg wound that came from the buffalo's sharp horns.
