Giraffe saves days old calf from pride of lions

Giraffe (Animal)Lion (Animal)newborn giraffeSafari (Industry)WildlifeHunting

This footage was taken from Kicheche Bush Camp (  in the heart of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in the Masai Mara by seven time Kicheche visitors Bill and Barbara Westbrook.

" Each time I think we can never beat the last,' Barbara says 'but this was remarkable, going on for almost half an hour as the mother protected her calf ferociously from the young Moniko pride. It was heart in the mouth stuff as we felt we might be witnessing something brutal as the casual menace of the sub-adult lions showed little signs of abating. Eventually the giraffes  got away and we breathed again.'

That's why I will never donate money nor cry over CECIL the LION- ALL LIONS, TIGERS, LEOPARDS, COUGARS- all ugly wild cats ARE EVIL CREATURES they all prey over innocent elephants, hippos, giraffe, zebras, rhinos just like ugly domesticated cats prey over innocent rabbits, birds. I love giraffes this giraffe was lucky watched another one where a baby giraffe was viciously attacked and baby eaten by lions. I never trust cats both domesticated or in the wild- they are vicious creatures as far as I am concerned, not much of a fan of large dog breeds either- many kill owners and newborns as well. If it preys and eats meat- it may attack and prey on you as well- cats and dogs should never be trusted with young children or newborns.

When I was a kid I had a job in a safari park and I was in the way when some giraffes stampeded. It was a really frightening experience. They really are huge animals.

nice tactic to defend against lions keeping youngster inside but is futile from real defensive attacks and requires great coordination or it would be a doomed failure.
Giraffe mothers are very aggressive... the trick is trying to pry the baby away... this mother wasn't falling for it... one kick from a giraffe and some lion will lose its head.
che brava ragazza la giraffa <3

Wasn't the giraffe able to see the lions approaching from miles away considering its about 190ft dopey animal.

This is sooo fake just look at the min 0:44 you can see the reflection of the stage on the upper right corner, plus the "Lions" are totally people dressed up as them and the big giraffe is in reality 2 guys.
Muito interessante como é a natureza, perceba a pequena girafa imitando sua mãe para aprender à tbm no futuro defender os seus filhotes!!! Natureza é foda
hungry lions - do not behave this way.

The nature of Lions is to kill, the buffaloes grazing, and human is just watch and take pictures.

Quem caiu do cavalo e achou q a girafa iria fazer algo de interessante curti aqui!

Que bom que a girafinha só morreu após o término do vídeo, fiquei mais tranquilo agora.
as leoas foram embora pq no mundo animal não existe curativo, um ferimento qualquer dessa girafa e morte na certa, elas so atacariam se tivesse morrendo de fome literalmente.
