Male lion keeps loitering hyenas at bay with powerful roar

This is the incredible moment a male lion uses its powerful voice to intimidate a group of loitering hyenas looking to steal food in the bush.

In a video filmed on June 3 in Kruger National Park, South Africa, shows the male lion standing over a buffalo carcass that could, according to the filmer, be smelled all throughout the bush.

But along with the lion, a group of 16 hyenas had also sniffed out the meal.

Footage shows the scavengers loitering around the lion and the carcass, attempting to intimidate the big cat by wailing.

But the lion stands its ground and the hyenas eventually lose interest.
