A helpless lion was crushed to death by a relentless stampede of buffalo who gored him and jumped on his head.
The lion, who had earlier been forced out of his pride, was spotted by the large group of buffalo, who are thought to have picked up on his scent in the Kruger National Park in South Africa
As the stampede moved closer, the lion tried to make a run for it but as he was injured from a previous fight, he was too slow.
