The images of wildebeest hooks lion by leg up to air that is Dramatic moment. Lion is the king. In order to fight the wildebeest, the bull always tries to use his horn to fight the enemy
The amazing incident was filmed inside the Kruger National Park by tour guide Hannes Joubert. The lion is a species in the family Felidae and a member of the genus Panthera. Present in Africa and India, the lion typically inhabits grasslands and savannahs, but is absent in dense forests.

Why Wildebeest Hooks Lion by Leg ??
Because Its is need to live. And also to warn lions: Wildebeest has horns
The great wildebeest migration is the movement of vast numbers. They migrating throughout the year, constantly seeking fresh grazing and, it’s now thought, better quality water. The precise timing of the wildebeest migration is entirely dependent upon the rainfall patterns each year. These beautiful pictures were taken during the Wildebeests migration
A group of tourists waited for the drama to develop although the result was most unexpected. Mr Joubert from Polkwane, South Africa, told Latestsightings.com: ‘We went to the park on April 26 2018 for the long weekend and happened to come across this attempted kill roughly about 24 km North of Satara Rest camp on your way to Olifants Camp.
‘We were unbelievably fortunate enough to have seen a wildebeest kill at Ngotso damn that same afternoon at 12.30. ‘We decided to head back there that afternoon to see what was left of the carcass when we came across these two female lions stalking this wildebeest so of course we decided to wait right there.
‘To our utmost delight this awesome sighting started to play out right in front of us. After waiting for an hour, the wildebeest took a dust bath and this is when all hell broke loose and the females gave chase. ‘The wildebeest fought back and managed to hook one of its horns into the leg of one of the lionesses.
‘This must have been extremely painful for the lion, as it was for quite a few moments that she was hooked onto the wildebeest. I am happy the wildebeest got away as lions cannot always win.’ Mr Joubert insisted it is incredibly rare to see a wildebeest escape after it is ambushed by a pair of lionesses.
“To tell the truth I had mixed emotions about the whole ordeal. This sighting is very scarce as lions usually kill wildebeest when they catch up to them. My advice to people in the same situation is to stay put and wait for the end. At some point it seemed the lions gave up cause this wildebeest kept walking away until it took a dust bath. What an incredible day!”
