Watch as a baby hippo defends its weakened mother from a lion who is circling with intent. The mother, weakened by drought, lays helpless on a riverbank in Kruger National Park while her calf valiantly staves off the beast. While the baby successfully repelled the lion, ultimately the ending was not happy. Watch to find out what happened.
