A clan of hyenas was chased off after trying to kill a lioness in Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Park. 

A group of tourists on safari watched on as a dozen hyenas tried to fight the larger and more powerful lioness. 

Briefly, the hyenas are in charge of the conflict, forcing the lioness to retreat and even forcing her to the ground.

However, hearing the amazing sound of the fight, the rest of the lioness’ pride race to her assistance. 

This prompts 30 seconds of furious fighting, and despite being outnumbered, the lionesses soon force the hyenas into retreat.  

The smaller hyenas can be heard screaming  on the video which was shot by Pareet Shah. 

Later footage shows one of the lionesses carrying a dead hyena who was killed during the skirmish.  

He said: ‘Our chief guide Bernard Tompoi spotted the Marsh Pride running towards a few hyenas. The hyenas didn’t make a run in time and three young lions got hold of a hyena pup and killed it within a few seconds.

“They didn’t eat it but just played with it for a few minutes before walking off. However as they were walking off, the hyenas were now back in big numbers (over 25 of them within less than 3-4 minutes) and they had cornered one lioness and started brutally attacking her with intent, wounding her.

‘She had to wait for a while before help came to her in the form of the rest of the pride. When the rest of the pride came, they nearly got a couple of the hyenas. Luckily for the lioness, she escaped her death.’
