This powerful footage was shot by Andrew Batchelor in the Kapen River last October. Starting in front of Rattrays Camp, the Eyrefield pride had been actively hunting the large herd of buffalo for quite some time. The hunt then moved some distance east towards the Kapen river, where the lions eventually caught and killed a buffalo calf. This video just shows the  calf making one last attempt to fend of its attackers before being dragged off. Click here if you’d like to see the feeding frenzy that ensued. And if you enjoyed this post, you might also enjoy the Styx pride corner a ‘dugga boy’.

Happy almost weekend folks, enjoy!
