Injured fox takes on a pride of lions

An incident in which an injured bat-eared fox took on a pride of lions at the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana, is taking the internet by storm.

Professional wildlife photographer, Graham Dyer from Johannesburg, captured the moment. It appeared the fox was injured by one of the lionesses, as it couldn’t stand on its hind legs. However, this didn’t stop the tiny fox from holding its own against the pride and even bit on of the lionesses on the nose.

The lions eventually left the fox to investigate what sounded like other lions fighting for food in the distance. To see the images and read the full story, visit:
