When lion lies down with the little lamb

A starving young lion certainly managed to get his claws into a tasty little snack. 

This intense video keeps you on the edge of your seat as you wait to see how it plays out…

The awesome footage was captured on film in the Kruger National Park by Graeme Mitchley, Deputy Principal at a School in Edenvale, South Africa.

At first, it looked like a lioness carrying her cub; however, at second glance, it turned out to be a young male carrying a newborn antelope.

The young lion carried the antelope down into the dry riverbed where we lost visual, but could still hear the antelope bleating.

The lion went into the riverbed also because there were white-backed vultures, hooded vultures and marabou storks in the vicinity hoping to take off with the antelope. I think this was pure opportunism on the part of the lion as he must have stumbled upon the newborn whilst walking through the bush.

We’re not too sure what happened to its mom, but she may have been grazing and wandered a bit too far off from her youngster.
