A lioness almost had her leg ripped off when a male buffalo gored her. Emergency vets scrambled to the middle of the Masai Mara Nature Reserve in Kenya when they heard about Siena’s life threatening injuries. Staff at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust – a specialist elephant rehabilitation centre – had to act quickly if they were to save the lioness on April 4. Dj Njoroge from the Kenyan Wildlife Trust was flown from Nairobi to the nature reserve where the injured lioness stood with her cubs.

Flying lion: buffalo launches predator into the air
THIS lion was flipped five metres into the air by a buffalo in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. The buffalo bull was conducting a daring rescue mission in a bid to save his friend from certain death. Two young lions had been silently stalking the buffalo for about 45 minutes when one finally made its move. But the predator was so focused on bringing down his prey that it left itself open to a surprise attack. The astonishing images were captured by Ian Matheson, 52, during an early morning game drive with his son Oliver, 16, and two of Oliver's friends in the Mjejane Reserve on the border of the Kruger Park. Amazingly all of the animals walked away from the encounter with no major injuries, except perhaps some bruised egos on the lion's part.

Lion attacks elephant: brutal kill caught on camera
THIS is the moment a powerful lion took down an African elephant - by itself. The juvenile male, estimated to be seven years old, was caught alone as it quenched its thirst at a watering hole. The rare footage shows the young elephant attempt to scare the predator away by mock charging before quickly turning on its heels. However, the lion easily catches up and leaps on its back and riding it until it tires and collapses into the dusty ground. The clip was caught on camera by Heidi and Kurt Haas in the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.

A LONE lioness shows her awesome power by bringing down a young giraffe single-handedly. The rare sight was captured on video by game ranger Jone Fick at the Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa. With terrifying speed and deadly precision the lioness brought down the year-old calf in front of its distraught mother in broad daylight. The event was unusual as lionesses normally hunt in packs at night.
