Nature video of the day: Young elephant survives 14-lion attack

Thursday, November 13, 2014

After getting separated from his herd, a 1-year-old elephant at the Norman Carr Safaris Chinzombo Camp in Zambia, got surrounded and attacked by 14 lionesses, but fortunately managed to get away, despite having three of the attackers on its back at one point.
The dramatic incident was captured on video when journalist Jesse Nash, Long Island University Art Professor Dan Christoffel, Naturalist Steve Baker and Australian TV personality Nina Karnikowski embarked on a game drive through the safari, stumbling upon the site.

"In the 30-plus years I have been a safari guide in Zambia at the Luangwe Park, never have I seen anything like this," said Innocent, a top safari guide who works with Norman Carr Safaris and drove the group to the site. "We were all so worried the baby elephant would be killed right before us."

The baby elephant has since reunited with his herd and now bears a heroic new nickname.
