Lion vs 30 Hyenas in a Six-Hour Battle for the Buffalo Carcass Dining Rights – Astonishing Images Capture the Struggle

This is the moment a lion took on thirty hyenas in a six hour long battle over a buffalo carcass in South Africa.

In one image, a 140-pound spotted hyena bit down into the lion’s side as the lion continued to snarl at the pack surrounding it, despite the gruesome attack. In another, the 400-pound lion closed in on the buffalo carcass after fending off the hungry hyenas for six hours.

Photographer and co-founder of SafariSmiths Kyle Smith, 26, from Hilton, South Africa, captured the incredible clash in the country’s Kruger National Park.

Kyle stood around 800-feet away as the spectacle played out over six hours. Kyle used a Sony AR7 IV camera and a Sony 200-600mm lens to take the incredible photos.

Hyenas gather food both by scavenging and by hunting. They will hunt in packs and use their 37 miles-per-hour speed to chase prey until exhaustion. The pack will then drag the tired prey down to the ground.
