Strength in Unity: Story of a Leopard and a Baboon (Video) 

A Leopard was caught on camera as it was tracking down a single baboon back to where its troop were hanging out.

The big cat thought that it might be able to choose one from the group and go after it, but the rest of the baboons there weren’t going to let that happen.

This is a perfect showcase of strength in numbers. A single baboon would have a hard time fending off a leopard attack, but 20 to 30 of them all fighting against the predator swings the battle in the favour of  “team baboon.”

As the leopard chases the baboon up the road and back into the troop of baboons, the monkeys realize what the big cat is trying to do and decide to make a stand.

The leopard might have had its teeth in the baboon it was chasing for a moment, but it quickly got overwhelmed by the sea of monkeys coming to fight it off.

Things get ugly fast for the leopard, who quickly falls to the ground as the baboons screech and pummel the larger animal without mercy.

Once the big cat figures out this isn’t going to go down as planned, it knows it needs to get out of there quickly to save its own life.

However, the baboons didn’t let the leopard leave easily, continuing to pull down and wail at it as it attempts to flee the scene.

Finally, the big cat breaks away from the troop and begins to sprint away as the video cuts off.

The leopard didn’t expect the fight that the baboons brought and quickly realized it would have to find something else “on the menu” other than the baboon.

The lessons we can learn from this scenario include:

Unity and strength in numbers; even the mightiest can fall.

If you are about to get yourself into a fight, make sure that the other side doesn’t have reinforcements.

When a battle is not working in your favour, use your remaining strength to leave the battle. You can chase another fight, or come back well-prepared.
