Lions under siege by antelopes and warty pigs in simultaneous attack


Apr 2, 2024

In South Africa’s Kruger National Park, a group consisting of a kudu, warthog, and impala worked together to scare off male lions. The moment this unusual alliance of animals confronted the lion was captured by AP wildlife photographer Roel Voel during a safari. Voel noticed the animals communicating near a marula tree, making sniffling and growling sounds. After some time, they moved together in the same direction, with Voel following them closely.

As they approached a sleeping lion, the kudu, warthog, and impala were focused and determined. Having suffered losses due to the lion in previous weeks, they surrounded and attacked it simultaneously. Despite the lion’s attempts to defend itself, it was overwhelmed by the swift and coordinated assault. The lion, now the hunted prey, had no choice but to flee and lick its wounds from a safe distance, while the other animals watched.

African lions are primarily found in sub-Saharan Africa and are the only cat species that live in groups. Female lions do the majority of hunting, targeting animals such as gazelles, zebras, and wildebeests. Male lions protect the pride’s territory. This incident in Kruger National Park was a rare and remarkable display of cooperation among different species of animals in the wild.
