Wildlife gone wild

Visitors stuck in a nature park traffic jam got an up-close view of a lioness on the attack.

When animal reserves warn motorists to stay inside their cars, they aren’t kidding. A convoy of tourists in South Africa’s Kruger National Park recently got as close to the wildlife as they’d like when a lioness attempted to take down a wounded water buffalo on the side of the road. Unfortunately for the female, two nearby lions acted like typical lazy males and wouldn’t help her finish off the prey. No one was hurt in the incident.
