Animal interaction video

A YouTube video posted this morning, showing an atack on a young cape buffalo 
by a pride of lions.  During the attack, a croc attempts to steal the buffalo 
from the lions.  Then the rest of the buffalo herd returns to rescue the 
original victim.  And yes, the cape buffalo do in fact, use both their hoves 
and their horns in their counter-attack.

Really has to make one think about the implications of dinosaur herding in both 
attack and defense.  Do the horns provide analogs to ceratpo(s)ian defensive 
use of horns?  Do the hoves provide alanogs to sauropod trampling of predators?
