Buffalo Mourn Dead Female After Lion Attack | SNAPPED IN THE WILD

Published September 7, 2017 6 Plays

Rumble AN encounter between a herd of cape buffalo and a pride of lions produced one of the rarest and most heartbreaking scenes ever captured in the wild. After taking down a lone female buffalo, the lionesses at the Greater Kruger Park South Africa, were faced by the angry herd coming to the defence of their fallen comrade. Within a few short moments the herd tended to the already dead buffalo, seemingly trying to get her to wake up. Cameraman and veteran safari guide, Rob Vamplew, filmed the bizarre event on a visit to the game reserve in April 2017.
