I saw this on a wildlife program where a lion pride had chased a giraffe and he managed to out run them but one solitary lion was waiting up ahead and jumped out, the giraffe lashed out with his long leg  and sent the lion sprawling. It made my day.

Thanks Arturo, it was wonderful to see, he'd out run the main pride and they had channeled him towards the lone lion who jumped out and got a well placed kick from the giraffe. Tom

Hi Tom, Good write and photo. Way to go! That giraffe didn't want to be that lion's meal today. Thanks for sharing:-) Alexis
