Exclusive footage shared by Latest Sightings shows a lion biting into a tyre at the Kruger National Park. The footage was captured on the way from Satara to Tshokwane and shows a startled reaction of a lion when he punctures the tyre.
Sean Obeirne who captured the video says, “I had been filming the entire interaction but wasn’t prepared for what I captured thereafter… there was an almighty bang and the lion investigating the car ran off in fright”. The male lion dashed off as the puncturing sound scared him. Onlookers came to the rescue of the car's occupants who were left with an adrenaline rush of a close encounter - and a flat tyre. The Obeirne family helped to replace the flat tyre, ensuring that they were a safe distance from the pride of lion.
