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 didnâ€™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.”
â€œIn the 30-plus years I have been a safari guide in Zambia at the Luangwe Park, never have I seen anything like this,â€ Innocent, a safari guide from the Norman Carr Safaris Chinzombo Camp in Zambia who drove the group of eyewitnesses, told the New York Post.
