14 Lions Were No Match For This Young Elephant

They chose the wrong elephant.

Not that tackling, killing and eating an elephant sounds easy, but these lions were in way over their head.

In an incredible piece of video journalism, a group of 14 lions were captured trying to take down a young elephant. The battle goes on for nearly three minutes of an edited video, in which the elephant charges, retreats, shakes lions off, kicks lions chasing it, and even jumps into the river.

The riveting footage, published by the New York Post, shows both the desperation of the wild and the perserverence of a young animal that simply wants to live. It is truly amazing.
