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

The young elephant was completely surrounded by the lions. As the felines began leaping onto the back and biting at the young elephant, the events took a dramatic turn, with the elephant deciding to run across the river in a desperate big to shrug off the onslaught.

The adolescent elephant was seen reunited with the rest of its herd the next day.
