This is the amazing moment a pride of 14 lions attempt to take down a young elephant. The event took place at South Luangwa National Park in Zambia.

The young elephant was completely surrounded by the lions. As the big cats began leaping onto its back and biting at the young pachyderm, the events took a dramatic turn.

The elephant made a quick and wise decision to run across the river in a desperate big to shrug off the onslaught.

The story ended well for the elephant — The adolescent individual was seen reunited with the rest of its herd the next day.
