It is best not to trifle with an angry cape buffalo.
Though lions are fearsome predators and can easily take down a buffalo under the right conditions, an angry cape buffalo is quite capable of dishing out quite a thrashing when it wants to. This young male lion learned that lesson the hard way in front of these tourists in a South African game reserve.
Check out the video to see just how bad things got for him.
Though the buffalo did not kill the lion outright, it looks like it severely injured it. Odds are that lion will die a slow and painful death from the injuries it sustained from the attack.
As the saying goes: when you mess with the bull, you get the horns. Life is tough and unforgiving in the wild.
