Remarkable moment hyenas gang up on lions to steal their kill

A group of safari-goers in South Africa witnessed the remarkable moment on Wednesday (July 14) when a group of hyenas chased lions from their kill. "It was during a recent nighttime safari in the Kruger National Park that we came across two lionesses feeding on what seemed to be the remains of a giraffe," explained the filmer. "It was not long before a few hyenas appeared. At first, the hyenas were nervous and careful about their approach but it was unbelievable to see how their numbers multiplied in a short span of time," he added. "The lionesses eventually realised that they were totally outnumbered and they stood the risk of losing more than just their food. One by one the lionesses got up and slowly disappeared into the darkness," he concluded.
