    Tourists who paid a visit to the South African Kruger National Park witnessed both the horrible and heroic scene of a massive hippo seemingly helping a kudu antelope, defending it against African hunting dogs.

    According to Carolyn Wridgway, the woman who uploaded the video, the hippo tried to save the helpless creature from cruel predators, however, it failed and the poor animal ultimately drowned. 

    She added that the hippopotamus was clearly sad when it realised that the antelope died and the battle for the baby kudu's life was lost.
