The Cape Buffalo versus the Lions

An interesting encounter between a Cape Buffalo and a pair of young male lions.  The lions were having a go at the buffalo, not sure what they were thinking as a fully grown Cape Buffalo is one of the few animals that can hold it’s own against a lion.  This buffalo was fearless, when the lions would get too close he would charge, and the lions would definitely retreat.  Interestingly, the wildebeest just stand around and watch.  Although they are a favorite meal of the lions, I guess they knew they weren’t on the menu here!  The lions eventually gave up.
