an intense fight for survival!
What an intense fight for survival!
Nature can a brutal mistress, and this is very evident in this video that shows a buck locked in a duel to the death with multiple predators.
In the video, you see the buck backed up against the water line of a river while a group of wild dogs attempt to get past its horns.
The buck manages to fend off the dogs after much effort, but just when it seems like the danger was over, you can see a hippo rear its head.
With the wild dogs in front and the hippo behind, the buck continues its fight, looking worse for wear.
Eventually, most of the wild dogs lose interest and when it looks like the buck is home free, a crocodile lunges at the buck and plunges it into a deathroll.
People had much respect for the buck and commented: “The buck fought bravely. It was remarkable that it managed to get the hippos to back off as well, but there's only so much you can do against overwhelming odds. At least death in the jaws of the crocodile will be less painful than wild dogs.”
