Mr Dyer, 47,  from Johannesburg, took the images last month.

He said: ‘When we got there the lead lioness had caught a bat-eared fox and had evidently injured its spine as it couldn’t stand on its hind legs.

‘The lioness had received a bite to her nose for the trouble.

‘The plucky fox was alarm-calling and snarling at the lions for the first five to six minutes but then, later, only when a lion approached.

‘Suddenly, all the lions heard what sounded like other lions fighting over food in the distance, they paused for a second and then all quickly ran off in that direction.’
