Watch this lion catch an antelope in mid-air

If watching the food chain in action makes you upset, this might not be the best video for you.

Amazing videos from the animal kingdom are nothing new, but we've never seen a lion fly through the air like this in order to nab a meal.

Onlookers in South Africa managed to catch a lion leaping off a ridge in pursuit of an antelope and grabbing it mid air before bringing it down. It's sad to see the antelope fail to get away because we all love the underdog but credit where it's due for the lion keeping both eyes firmly on the prize.
