I hope the young male recovers from his injuries. He's tough stuff. If the older one was trying to form a coalition as the article states, I think he needs to revise his style.

Wow what fantastic photos of an older male lion attacking a younger male, I had no idea that female lions would step in - but I guess in nature they have their pride.
Thanks for sharing Cher.

The power of females, usually related, and the heads of prides...letting the males protect and mate, but not much else. This is what matriarichal societes are like - protecting the family, no matter the age, from all, sometimes including the pride male(s).
