A Once-in-a-Lifetime Moment: Brave Lioness defeпdѕ һeɩрɩeѕѕ Fox аɡаіпѕt ргedаtoгу Male Lion, A Touching Display of Compassion in the Animal Kingdom

A feisty fox left a pride of lions with their tails between they legs after a battle on an African game reserve – and even managed to bite a lioness on the nose.

The tiny animal held his own as it defended itself on a path in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana.

And these pictures, taken by South African wildlife photographer Graham Dyer, show exactly how strong its resolve was.

The fox was seen struggling to move after being attacked by a member of the pride – and as the lions closed in, the cunning creature proved it wasn’t going down without a fight.

Mr Dyer, 47,  from Johannesburg, took the images last month.

He said: ‘When we got there the lead lioness had caught a bat-eared fox and had evidently injured its spine as it couldn’t stand on its hind legs.

‘The lioness had received a bite to her nose for the trouble.

‘The plucky fox was alarm-calling and snarling at the lions for the first five to six minutes but then, later, only when a lion approached.

‘Suddenly, all the lions heard what sounded like other lions fighting over food in the distance, they paused for a second and then all quickly ran off in that direction.’
