Impala Evades Lion Attack Only to Be Killed by a Hippo in Kruger National Park [VIDEO]

Some days luck just isn’t on your side. 

In a rather shocking video straight from the group, Kruger Sightings, comprised of staff from the park that records animal encounters that are rarely seen, comes a shocking video that is literally hard to watch.

Be warned, however. This graphic video you are about to see will show an impala killed by a hippo in a case of very unfortunate luck.

As seen in the video, a lion chases an impala into a mud pit in which the lion will no longer pursue. Things seem pretty grim for the impala because it gets stuck in the mud and sure to die.

However, things take an even greater turn for the worse as a hippo sees what is going on and doesn’t take kindly to the impala in its territory. The rest, well, you can watch for yourself.

Even though the impala dodged the lion, perhaps getting killed by a hippo was a worse way to go.

They say hippos kill more humans than any other animal. This video is a grim reminder why that is known to be true.
