Water Buffalo Flings Lion Into Air for Messing With His Friend

Don't mess with a buffalo.

Video footage from South Africa’s Kruger National Park is a constant reminder of why it is always a bad idea to mess with the water buffalo.

First there was 2007′s uber-viral “Battle of Kruger” video, in which a team of water buffalo fought off crocodiles and lions who were going after a calf, and now there’s this gem in which a protective buffalo flings a lion 5 meters (16 ft.) in the air for trying to eat his friend.

You mess with the water buffalo, you get the horns.

What ever Buffalo they are, good for them they seem not to take crap from any animal including humans.

This blog should really fact check like publications used to do in the good old days.  Those are Cape buffalo.  Africa does not have water buffalo.
