Buffalo bull mauled one of the lionesses who reportedly died two days later

This is the moment when a heroic buffalo came to the rescue of a damsel in distress after the cow came under attack from two lionesses.
The lions had initially stalked a buffalo calf and the mother had charged at the lions to save her young one, but found herself outnumbered during the battle in Okavango Delta in Botswana.
The lions attempted to take down the cow a number of times, but that she was finally ‘saved’ by a bull from the herd.  In a dramatic turn of events, a protective macho buffalo steps in, scaring the lions away and nearly mauling the injured lioness to death – saving the mother’s life. The lioness crawled out of the mud and died two days later.
‘The bull came and chased the female lions off the mother buffalo, trying to injure them.
‘Luckily they escaped, but while he chases them he sees the injured female lion and really finishes her off, by mauling her and pushing her into the mud.’
