Paws off! This is the dramatic moment a lion PUNCHED a love rival in a bitter feud over a lioness.
The scrap broke out after a feisty lion challenged another in a quest to steal his female.
The fight was captured by French photographer Lorraine Bettex, who visited Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in Botswana in October 2016.
She said: “It was early in the morning and although the fight didn’t last long, it was really powerful.
“The two females just sat there and watched on as the males fought over them.”
