A video showing zebras running over a lioness has surfaced the internet, leaving netizens stunned. The clip, shared on YouTube by Maasai Sightings on Sunday, was filmed in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.
“A pride of lions in the Serengeti were hunting zebras and a lioness decided to stand in front of the zebra charge and try to catch one, only to be trampled underfoot by the charge,” the post’s caption reads.
Watch the video below:
The one-minute video opened to show prides of lions scattering across an open field to capture some zebras. Then, within moments, the camera focused on one of the lionesses, who was hunting in the middle of a charge.
The whole scene made the ground look like a war zone. But as nature would have it, the lioness caught two zebras, according to the YouTube post’s caption.
