Hearing the sound of a son crying while engrossed in flirting with a new mate after her husband was eaten by a lion, the wildebeest left her mate to turn and stab the lion to avenge her husband’s death.


A video recorded in Amakhosi National Reserve, Zululand (South Africa) shows the scene of a wildebeest being controlled by a lion, and seems to just lie down to die.

When everyone thought about a tragic end for the ill-fated prey, suddenly it rose strongly, making the lion extremely hard to hold.

With a strong will, the wildebeest showed that it was not an “easy to eat” prey, when it tried to fight fiercely, tossing the lion despite the fact that it was being planted by the enemy with its teeth in its neck.

Its efforts eventually sent the lion flying after a while of fighting. Knowing that she could not run away, the wildebeest rushed forward.

With the direction of the antelope’s horns “fifty-five” towards him, the lion had no choice but to “curl his tail” and run away. At this point, the antelope quietly retreated.

Although they are herbivores and gentle, shy, but wildebeest are very strong, and can make lions hate when they intend to attack.

Their biology resembles an interesting hybrid of an antelope and buffalo, with a nimble, agile hindquarters, and a heavier front part with massive mane and horns.

In particular, the horns are a rare weapon that the wildebeest is bestowed by “mother nature”. Their horns are shaped like “curly braces”, extending outward, then curved upwards. In males, their horns can be up to 83 cm long.

Thanks to these horns, wildebeest can choose to attack to defend themselves, instead of running away like other herbivores.
