Description: Lioness and Cub in tug of war(thog)

Story from behind the lens: When we stopped to watch a lioness from the Hammerkop pride, she was clearly looking for food. The only available meal was a warthog and her young and she successfully hunted the latter. What I didn't expect was for then one of the lion cubs to then tussle with its mother and steal the kill. Usually they have the manners to wait until dinner is served to them!
