Safari-goers in Zambia witnessed something remarkable during a recent game drive – a one-year-old baby elephant surrounded by 14 lions, all vying to get a bite. With three lions on his back, the situation seemed hopeless for the little elephant but he didn’t give up.
The young elephant with the fighting spirit managed to ward off the entire pride, and escape back to his mother. To (mis)quote Shakespeare: “And though he be but little, he is fierce.”
“In the 30-plus years I have been a safari guide in Zambia at the Luangwe Park, never have I seen anything like this,” Innocent, a safari guide from the Norman Carr Safaris Chinzombo Camp in Zambia who drove the group of eyewitnesses, told the New York Post.
