Lions attack giraffe, one big cat clings onto its back. What happens next is incredible
A viral video featuring a giraffe and a pride of lions is doing the rounds of the internet. The video was originally shared by Kruger Sightings on YouTube in 2019. The video was recorded by a group of tourists at the Kruger National Park in South Africa. It managed to grab attention once again when IRS officer Naveed Trumboo of the Indian Revenue Service shared it on Twitter. The video conveys a message on perseverance and determination.
“A lesson on persistence. There will be many who will try to pull you down. But when the going gets tough, the tough gets going,” Naveed Trumboo said in the caption of his post.
