Yes, you read that right. These tourists in Africa captured footage of a hyena biting a Cape buffalo bull right in the crotch in a vicious attack from behind.
Cape buffalo are big, strong and mean, but they still have their weak spots. Though they normally have fear lions the most, a pack of hyenas can still really ruin a buffalo’s day. In this particular case, one hyena in front of the buffalo occupied his attention while another hyena darted in behind the buffalo and attacked his most vulnerable spot—his balls.
WARNING: If you couldn’t tell from the article title, this video is pretty graphic. Watch at your own risk.
As you can see, that didn’t end well for the buffalo, and he didn’t put up much resistance after those hyenas got him on the ground.
This is just another reminder that life in the wild can be short, brutal and violent, especially in Africa.
Compared with this, death by a hunter’s bullet seems pretty tame.
