The pack of hyenas attacked the lion, but retreated through cunning lioness
In Botswana at the National Moremi game reserve, where the lions gave the hyenas ambush, a tourist filmed attack of the pack of African wild dogs at the lioness with a cub. The video was posted on the Kruger Sightings channel on Youtube.
“I had no words, I was so worried about the mother lion and her cub. The guide told us that she had killed all the other cubs. The dog tried to attack, but then gave up and left, and the lioness with the cub was safe. The next day we saw these wild dogs. One was limping with the wounds from the bite,” recalled the woman.
The footage of the video you can see how the dogs are circling around large carnivores, and try to attack, but the lioness managed to get the hyenas to focus all attention on her, allowing the cub to get away from the attack.
As you know, African wild dogs occur in national parks and pristine areas of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Swaziland. These animals are able to in one sitting to eat up to nine kilograms of meat. Like hyenas, they are not afraid of lions and can pose a threat even to large carnivores.
Moremi national Park is located in Botswana. Five thousand square kilometers is inhabited by numerous wild animals, including buffaloes, giraffes, rhinos, lions, elephants, hippos, zebras, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, antelope and wild dog, as well as lychee.
