A completely alone and frightened lion was forced to face a herd of fierce hyenas in the African savannah.
The cat was able to withstand the great attack until a friend of its kind arrived unexpectedly to help him
"At first he began to show the hyenas how much he was trying to subdue them, one by one, but then found himself surrounded by twenty or thirty of them without escape. Each time he attacked one, many others rushed at him from behind"explains Simon Blakeney, one of the authors of the video that was published by BBC Earth.
When he ends up being completely trapped by the herd of carnivores, another lion comes rushing to his aid, pushing away the hyenas, who to leave the place quickly and both felines "celebrate" the feat.
It was the last one that caused great affection among users of YouTube, since many did not believe in how the two lions show affection and play as if nothing after the risky combat. Clearly, catsThey are grateful to have more time to live.
