A video of a cheetah, vultures and a lion fighting over the same catch in South Africa is being widely shared on social media.
A video released by Kruger Sightings – a platform which releases videos from South Africa’s Kruger National Park, showed a cheetah, a group of vultures and a lion fight over an impala in the Sabi Sabi game reserve.
Watch the video here:
The video shows a cheetah devouring its impala kill while a group of vultures drop in. Despite the cheetah’s attempts to frighten away the birds, they keep gathering until they’re a large group. The overwhelmed cheetah runs away from its kill as the vultures close in, prompting a feeding frenzy among the birds.
However, as the birds are feasting a lion turns up and the vultures are forced to flee. The lion then runs off with what’s left of the impala.
Take a look at some of the comments on the video here:
Cheetah should learn the fact that darr ke age jeet hai.

Wonderful. It is indeed this attitude that makes him the king of the Jungle.

Nothing is absolute. Different msgs. It’s upto ppl what they want to perceive

It is circumstances that decide. Speed matters for the cheetah, strength for the lion and team work for the hyenas.
Hunting needs common sense rather than attitude.

Not attitude, but the brute physical power of the lion that frightened the vultures here.
