New Delhi: A buffalo miraculously managed to escape despite being surrounded by five lions just because of a mere fight. Yes, this actually happened. 

The video, initially shared by an Instagram handle named latestkruger, was recently re-posted by Parveen Kaswan of the Indian Forest Service (IFS) and it shows how the pride of lions in South Africa's Kruger National Park broke out into a fight to eat their prey. 

The lions had dragged a buffalo to eat and as soon as they were ready to attack it, two of them snapped at the third one and soon, a fight followed amongst themselves. 

Taking advantage of the situation, the buffalo, which wasn't dead yet, walked away.

"These lions have a lesson to teach. They were having their meal but decided to fight with each other. And food walked away," Kaswan captioned the video.
