However, in an attempt to fend off the lion, the calf’s protective mom rushes to the lion’s way.

But it isn’t long until the mother and the infant are brought low by pride.

“The lions were attempting to split the mother and infant, and they eventually succeeded in separating and k.i.l.l.i.n.g the baby,” James continued.
