Watch: Lion flipped five metres into the air by a buffalo!
This is unbelievable! In a viral video which has surfaced on social media sites, watch this amazing footage of how a wild buffalo manages to throw a lion up in the air to save a fellow buffalo.
This video captured in the Kruger National Park, South Africa shows how two young lions had been trying to track down a defenseless buffalo for about 45 minutes. Then not of nowhere in a bid to save his friend, the fellow buffalo in its rage just flipped the lion five metres in the air.
These astonishing images were captured by Ian Matheson, 52, during an early morning game drive with his son Oliver, 16, and two of Oliver's friends in the Mjejane Reserve on the border of the Kruger Park. Amazingly all of the animals walked away from the encounter with no major injuries.
