Africa -

This video brings tears to the eyes of the audience.

It is probably the scariest scene in the Disney classic "The Lion King": The likeable baby lion Simba is attacked out of nowhere by a pack of aggressive hyenas.

While only Disney screenwriters with a vivid imagination were at work for the cartoon, a hyena attack for young lions in the African savannah is the bitter reality.

BBC shares lion video from African savannah

As part of the “Dynasties” series, the BBC shared a video from the African savannah (see above).

“As young male lions grow up, they begin to explore their surroundings,” says the voice of a narrator at the beginning of the video. This shows the lion Red, who runs briskly through the savannah and drains his environment.

Lion Red encounters packs of vicious hyenas

What the young lion does not expect is that he will come across a whole flock of hyenas during his exploration tour.

This suddenly appears in the video. The hyenas surround him, hiss at him with venomous voices and try to bite him.

At first Red tries to defend himself, but as soon as he turns to one of the hyenas, other hyenas attack him from all sides, scratch him and peck his fur with their sharp teeth.

The lion's strength is slowly waning. For a long time he can no longer keep the enemy group at bay. He seems to be completely helpless in the face of the hyena herd.

At this point in time, the queasy feeling arises in viewers that they now have to watch poor Red in his preprogrammed annihilation. We all know that the animal world can be cruel.

Unexpected turn ensures the lion is saved

But suddenly the unexpected turning point happens: Red gets help! Namely from his friend, the young lion Tatu, who obviously heard the fight from a distance.

"Two male lions are too strong even for 20 hyenas," says the narrator in the video. “Red is lucky,” he concludes.

Video has millions of views on YouTube

The following scenes, which show Red and Tatu cuddling and cuddling on their way home to their lion home, leave many viewers a huge stone from the heart.

The video by Red and Tatu is currently making the rounds on the Internet and has already been clicked over eight million times on the online video platform YouTube (as of December 5, 2018).
