A male lion was in the middle of enjoying a wildebeest kill when some hyenas started giving him trouble.

It started out as a few hyenas near the lion while he ate but it quickly turned into a dozen of them that were feeling up for a challenge. Not long after, they started going in and biting the lion as he fought them off and protected his kill.

Even for a lion, twelve against one isn’t what we’d call even odds.

Luckily for him, some nearby females from his pride heard his growl and moans and came rushing in to help. It doesn’t take long for the hyenas to realize they were seriously outmatched, so they ran for the hills as the female lions chased them.
