Animal world-Fawn fights back

Often it is the minnows, the underdogs, that deserve our praise more than the A-list. Injured and abandoned, a lone wildebeest fawn tottered up and down a stinking pool. This foot of water was the only respite from the attentions of three young lions...

Finally with hunger overcoming feline fear of water, a medium-sized female closed in...

The inevitable coup de grace surely lay ahead...

Moments later, the lioness was fleeing, pursued by a furious wildebeest one-third of its size. Dripping blood from previous injuries, this callow calf showed the now disgraced lion a clean set of cloven heels...

The calf succeeded in driving away the lioness.
