It was the scene of an 8-year-old elephant trying to fight off a savage attack from 14 hungry lionesses. The fierce battle was recorded by tourists in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia.
Thoughts that the lone elephant would become delicious prey for the hungry lions. However, the lions that had the majority advantage still had to give up before the elephant because the prey fought fiercely.
After a protracted battle, the elephant turned the tide, attacked the lions, and finally escaped unscathed. To celebrate the victory, the elephant joyfully clapped its ears, ran and splashed with its trunk.
“We were all very worried that the elephant would be killed right in front of our eyes. Fortunately, it was a ‘brave warrior.’ It fought and defeated all 14 lions – it was impossible . believable,” commented a tour guide in South Luangwa Park.
