This lion in the video below did not have a good day.

Not only did the predator have to spend 45 minutes carefully stalking and bringing down its prey, but it was attacked by the buffalo’s friends.

One very angry buffalo ran over and picked up the lion with its horns and flipped the cat up into the air over its head. Then it launched the lion again, and it looks like one of the horns may have injured the predator. It’s a scary sight!

We’ve always thought that the lion is supposed to be king of the jungle, but it looks like sometimes a buffalo has the upper hand…or horn!

This video was captured in a national park in South Africa.
