A video shared by Parveen Kaswan of the Indian Forest Services on Twitter shows a group of lions in South Africa's Kruger National Park preparing to feed on a buffalo.
The group comprised five lions and had just brought a buffalo down to the ground. It wasn't dead yet. Within seconds, two of the lions launched an attack on the third, which some on Twitter pointed out belonged to some other pride, the reason why it was targetted.
The remaining two lions, too, got involved in the fight. And the buffalo, dragged by the group, pounced on the opportunity, took a while to come back to its feet, and ran away immediately.
Not just Kaswan, many others on Twitter also saw a lesson in the video. Here are some of the responses:

Maybe the lesson is not to mess with nature. And take your ‘pride’ seriously. An intruder can never belong.— Zalak Bhavsar (@andzalak) September 1, 2019
