Heart-stopping footage captures a gang of lionesses attack the male of the pride in a bid to kill him in front of horrified visitors at a British safari park.
The powerful beasts pounce on the male and sink their teeth into his body in the terrifying clip.
Mya Beverstock, 19, filmed the attack at West Midlands Safari Park near Bewdley, Worcs., on Wednesday.
The teenager said the lion was left roaring in agony and had bloody bite marks after up to nine females carried out the brutal assault "out of the blue".
Zookeepers used fire extinguishers to spray the animals .
