Water buffalo down! Herd desperately struggles to save their injured companion from a group of hungry lions before they realize that he can no longer save and leave
- Lions and buffalo had a tense face in the Kruger National Park, South Africa
- The carnivorous lions brought down one of the buffalo when the buffalo ran away
- Shortly thereafter, the buffalo return and one of them rushes in to save one
- Unfortunately for the buffalo, their fallen comrade could not be saved and the herd left
This is the tense moment that a herd of buffalo takes on a group of hungry lions before one of them attacks to save one of them from eating.
Gert Cloete, 78, filmed the incredible footage that shows one of the herds rushing in to save a fellow buffalo from the carnivorous predators in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
The video, taken on July 23, captures the moment when a group of around 20 buffalo & # 39; come back from revenge & # 39; in an attempt to ward off the attacking lions who had brought their purpose to the ground.
But luckily for the lions, once the buffalo realized that there was no hope for their fallen comrade, they began to leave, apparently accepting the loss.

Mike Bison: The incredible images show one of the herd driving in to save a fellow buffalo from carnivorous predators in Kruger National Park, South Africa
Mr Cloete, who is retired, stayed at the Ngwenya Lodge, adjacent to the park.
He said: “It was Tuesday and I had looked across the Crocodile River for a small herd of Buffalo that did not graze far away, it was quiet until peace for the buffalo was disrupted by a pack of hungry lions rushing in an almost photo perfect scene.
& # 39; The lions began to chase the herd and eventually brought down one of the buffalo. I watched for a while while the rest of the herd seemed to be watching from a distance after they ran away, as if they were trying to decide on their next move.
& # 39; I thought it was all over for the poor buffalo – when suddenly the small herd of about 20 buffalos returned with a vengeance to save the one who was left dead a few moments ago. & # 39;
The video starts with a group of about twelve lions gathered at the buffalo that had just been caught.
The buffalo then crawl nearby and the two species are confronted before one of the herbivores breaks the rows and attacks the lions.

Mr. Cloete said: & While the harassment continued between the buffalo and the lions, I was surprised to find that two of the male buffalo were now trying to interlock, horns locked and all! As if they are not aware of the attempt at salvation.
& # 39; When the herd realized that the damage had been done and the victim did not want to return with them, they began to move toward the distance. It was as if I saw a film unfold and the perception was amazing, I feel so happy and appreciate that I have been able to experience such a small part of God's creation.
# Victory for the buffalo in trying to help each other because it was incredible, these were scenes I had seen before watching National Geographic, so it was my first time in reality, and I hope everything is that way can be happy as to witness such an event.
& # 39; I feel that there is a lesson to be learned from this experience, it was great to see such & # 39; n collaboration in nature. It teaches people to help each other. & # 39;
