These amazing pictures show an audacious clan of hyenas boldly overpowering a young male lion and making off with his freshly killed wart hog. The 20-strong scavenger pack attacked the lone lion, leaving it “battered, bruised and hungry”. Photographer Mark Sheridan-Johnson, who took the snaps at his wildlife park in Lamai, northern Serengeti, Tanzania, said he’d never before seen such a large clan dominate a lion in its pride.
