This is the moment nine lionesses savagely assaulted a lion in front of shocked visitors.
Shocking footage shown in the carry of females rending their teeth into the leader of the pride’s body at West Midlands Safari Park.
The lionesses then drag him from the cliffs into the water where he is examined helplessly roaring in pain.
Safari workers at the pen in Bewdley, Worcs ., had to step in and scatter fervor extinguishers at the wolves to break up the ferocious onrush after the male was left contained within blood.
It is conceivable the lionesses were trying to kill their governor because he was too old to operate the pride.
However Mya Beverstock, who caught the attack on movie, said the females may have pounced on him after a dispute over food.
She said: “It pretty much happened out of the blue. It was feeding season and then suddenly we heard growling and roaring.
“Two other males stepped back and didn’t get involved while the females criticized the president. He may have ate before his turn.”
She computed: “Safari workers dealt with it very quickly. Three jeeps ended up in the pen honking their tusks and driving towards the lions to divulge them up.
“One of the jeeps scattered them with a fervour extinguisher which objective up mainly broken off the fight.
“We did go around the ballpark again afterwards and all the female lions had been removed from the enclosure and “theres only” the three males in there.”
Luckily, the lion who was jumped on was strong enough to survive the merciless attack.
In February of this year a pride of lions jumped at a gondola at the same safari park.
No one was injured in the attack but the roof was left dented and scratched.
