"Come here you coward": A scared lion runs away and clings to a tree after escaping a herd of angry buffaloes that attacked it during a chase in the savannah.

“Come here you coward”: A scared lion runs away and clings to a tree after escaping a herd of angry buffaloes that attacked it during a chase in the savannah.

Even the King of the Jungle knows when he is outgunned, and facing an entire herd of buffalo, this lion made the wise decision to leg it.

The brilliant pictures showing an absolutely terrified lion with dozens of buffalo hot on his heels, were captioned on the Masai Mara in Kenya by two photographers on safari.

Initially, the buffalo were approached by a lioness from the male lion’s pride, but before she could attack the bovine, the herd noticed the presence of the hunters.

Moving as one, the herd turned on the lion and his lioness and began running towards them to chase them off.

The lioness appears to have sped off out of sight, but the male lion, not accustomed to running neither after or in front of his dinner, is left behind with terror in his eyes.

Laurent Renaud and Dominique Haution captured the hilarious reverse hunt while on safari in the Masai Mara National reserve, Kenya.

Mr Renaud, 55, said: ‘You could see the fear in the lion’s eyes.

‘When we pulled up, the cats were just lying in the bush. But buffalo don’t like lions being nearby and they turned on them quickly. The lions didn’t need a second invitation to flee and they got out of there sharp.’

A cowardly lion was forced to hide up a tree after a herd of buffalo it was hunting decided to turn around and chase it away.

The lion clung on to a branch after it bungled an attempt to stalk the herd in Masai Mara, Kenya.

When the buffalo saw the lion approaching, they turned around and chased, forcing it up a tree for hours.

 

Photographer Olav Thokle, 54, from Norway, captured the moment the king of the jungle was forced to scamper to safety.

He said: ‘Suddenly the buffalo became aware of the lion’s presence. He saw a lonely tree on the great savannah and climbed to safety from the big buffalo. He stayed in the tree for nearly an hour, before the buffalo herd left the area.’
