Buffalo Calf Escapes Leopard Only To Run Into Lion

Incredible footage shows the moment a mother buffalo protects her calf from a leopard, only to run into a massive, hungry male lion moments later!

The surprising sequence of events was caught on camera by Matthew Steyn in Kruger National Park, South Africa.

“After some time, the rest of the herd seemed to move off slowly, leaving the mother and calf behind – alone. The mother and calf were completely unaware of the leopard,” Matthew told Latest Sightings. “But now, not only the leopard, a lion decided to show up to the party!”
