Every now and then, a viral video comes along that is truly remarkable—not because Uncle Cletus was that drunk, not because the little kitty was that cute—but because the events depicted are among the likes of which humans rarely have the privilege to see.
Enter the video above. Entitled "Battle at Kruger," it was filmed by a an incredibly lucky safari group parked outside of a South African watering hole. It all starts when a few cape buffaloes—calves in tow—unwittingly stumble upon a group of lionesses on the hunt. I really don't want to spoil it, but let's just say that soon afterwards a crocodile gets involved, a 300-pound lioness gets tossed into the air like a bean bag, and the ending would make Rocky himself shed a tear of admiration. Lesson learned? Nothing knows the true meaning of revenge as well as a herd of angry cape buffalo. —John Mahoney
