This scaredy-cat was forced to take cover in a tree after being set upon by an angry elephant. In an unusual twist of fate the terrified lioness was filmed sprinting through the Central Serengeti in Tanzania with a plucky pachyderm hot on its tail. Seconds later she can be seen darting up a tree and trying to take cover in the sparse branches, while the determined elephant reaches up with its trunk and grabs at the frightened feline. The tables turned on the lioness when she was separated from a pride of lions that were feeding on a kill. She took refuge in a tree but when she suddenly decided to make a dash for freedom, one brave elephant gave chase, following the lioness for a kilometre, before she was once again forced to seek safety in another tree.
