In order to save the calf from the sharp claws of two hungry lions, the mother buffalo and the whole herd rushed forward, using her sharp horns to attack, causing the two lions to run away.
This terrifying battle was captured by South African photographer Jay van Rensburg in Kruger National Park (South Africa).
While hunting, two hungry herds spotted a herd of wild buffalo and they targeted a calves.
Although the calf tried to run with the pack, the two lions still caught up and grabbed the prey.
After catching their prey, they used their strength to knock down the calf, leaving the calf exhausted and lying still waiting to die.
