This was a confrontation that took place in Tarangire NP between a pride of lions at a very recent wildebeest kill, and a family of elephants looking to protect their young. When the lead group of elephants crossed the water after passing the lions, one of the elephants came running back, and trumpeting at the lone lion that remained at the kill. The elephant finally went on its way.
