Courageous Stand: Buffalo Confronts Three Hungry Lions to Rescue Stolen Calf from the Clutches of the Herd

This is the moment a brave buffalo charged three lions after they grabbed a young calf from the herd.

But the outnumbered buffalo could not hold them at bay and a young lion pounced and snapped away the baby between its jaws.

While the buffalo stands up to two of the lions, a third big cat approaches from behind to close in on the calf

And the rest of the herd arrived just in time to mount a dramatic rescue and send the lions retreating with their tales firmly between their legs.

Amateur photographer Andreas Häntzschel, 39 from Aachen, Germany, captured the whole clash on camera while he was on safari.

Andreas said: ‘I like the nature, I like travelling and I like to take pictures in a documentary style.

‘This was absolutely unreal. This was amazing and you don’t get a lot of chances to see something like it.
