As the wildebeests came out in the hundreds from the river crossing, this wildebeest got unlucky & was attacked and brought down by a lioness. The lioness went for the next hunt and left this still alive wildebeest in the hold of 3 of her teenage cubs (probably a year old). One can see the desperation in the wildebeest's eyes. This desperation on the part of the wildebeest gave it the inner strength to shake of these 3 cubs and eventually escape with it's life to live another day. All of us on the sidelines clapped when it finally got away!
