See how a brave zebra saves a baby from a lion attack

Some viewers may find it difficult to watch the accompanying video, which depicts a mother zebra rushing to the aid of her foal who is being attacked by a female lion

An apparent happy ending can be found in the footage shot by Mmbangiseni Milton Tshiolol while exploring the Kruger National Park in South Africa

The lion appears to be temporarily deterred from continuing its hunt after being stunned by momma zebra's furious charge and head kick

The video, which appeared on the Kruger Sightings Facebook page on Wednesday, appears to have been taken from a safari vehicle

Tshiolol had not yet responded to an inquiry from FTW Outdoors at the time of this post

On a recent post, a commenter wrote: "Amazing, the strength of a mother's love for her children."
