Two lionesses sᴛᴀʀᴛʟᴇd two blesboks that were running in their way and led to the remarkable takedown. The hungry female caught the ᴛᴇʀʀɪғɪᴇᴅ blesbok in midair as he tried to jump off the ridge many meters in order to escape. The fierce carnivores rapidly devoured the captured animal, leaving the other blesbok to make a daring escape. Tour guide Joné Fick, 28, photographed the astonishing incident just a few feet from her tour bus.
In the Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Aғʀɪᴄᴀn Shamwari Game Reserve, the group had been observing the two lionesses perched on the ridge. The lionesses instantly rose to their feet and charged the two blesbok that were charging up the slope in their direction.
The blesbok decided to take the final available option, leaping in the direction of the road and falling four meters to the ground. The blesbok was smacked into the road next to their car by the second lioness after it jumped dramatically in its direction, caught it in midair, and grabbed it. Being present at the right time was pure luck, according to Joné Fick, who said that she had never witnessed such a sighting.
After being violently knocked to the ground, the animals continued to ғɪɢʜᴛ until the two lionesses defeated them. When the lioness and blesbok tumbled to the ground next to them, Joné Fick was certain that they would collide with the automobile. Many of them were simply staring at the spectacle, stunned, while others were murmuring their disbelief. The blesbok was hauled back to the top of the ridge by the lions, where they gorged on their well-earned meal.
Let’s take a look at this amazing moment:
