A water buffalo throws off a hungry lion like a bucking bull before escaping. The animal tries desperately to dislodge a series of the predators which take turns trying to bring it down.

The male buffalo appears to almost be in a rodeo as it continually bucks to get rid of the attacking pack of around 10 lions. The unique scene was captured in the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya by professional photographer Mathieu Pujol.
