Blond Maned Lion with Blood on His Muzzle

Blond maned lion with blood on his muzzle, part of a coalition of two. Both lions were very relaxed and basically laid down and went to sleep. It looked like they were eating a cape buffalo. The carcass was open at the gut and the lions' faces were full of blood. At first I thought the carcass was of a warthog, but it was much too big. I do not know if these were the only lions involved in bringing down the prey.
