A one-year old elephant at the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia got separated from his herd. Journalist Jesse Nash shot this footage of him fighting off 14 lionesses eager for a meal. He's badly outnumbered, but he eventually figured out a strategy that would make his enemies less eager to attack.
The elephant, whom the local humans now call Hercules, eventually reunited with his herd.
