Lioness Found An Injured Baby Fox, But What Happened Next Is The Last Thing You’d Expect

Lions are some of the most fearsome creatures in the animal kingdom, and for good reason. These predators can easily outrun and outsmart their prey, making them the perfect killing machines.

So that’s why when this lioness approached an injured baby bat-eared fox in Botswana’s Central Kalahari Game Reserve, we truly feared the worst.

The lioness noticed the injured fox on a dirt road. The poor fox was absolutely terrified and froze in fear.
