Cape Buffalo Herd Saves Lone Bull from Lions: Those Are Some Good Friends

Cape Buffalo Herd Saves Lone Bull From Lions Now Those Are Some Good Friends

Watch this Cape buffalo herd take on a whole pride of lions to save another buffalo.

This unfortunate Cape Buffalo bull ran afoul of a pride of lions and, after a short fight, they managed to take him down. He was only seconds away from death and becoming lion lunch when a bunch of other buffalo showed up. They did not appreciate what the lions were doing and quickly waded into the fray.

Watch the video to see how it all went down.

Now those are what I would call some great friends! Would your friends take on a whole lion pride to save you from being killed and eaten?

Though he was probably pretty chewed up, buffalo are very tough animals and the odds are very good that, unless he ran afoul of some lions again, this buffalo probably managed to make a full recovery thanks to the intervention of those other buffalo.
