This video of a young male lion figting with hyenas was taken by a guest during April 2002. This young male and his mother killed a baby giraffe earlier in the afternoon and the hyenas arrived just after sunset. The lions moved off shortly afterwards, but the hyenas were looking for a fight and did not seem interested in the meat at all. The video showed part of the battle that followed. The lions in the end sought refuge in a big Marula tree and escaped relatively unharmed.
