I must admit I've never seen footages of chimps scaring off lions.
But I have seen footages of lions making mincemeat out of
baboons making threat displays. The baboons almost all disappeared
as soon as there was a charge, and one or two male baboons that
didn't get scared became dinner.

1)Sorry but are chimps "open country" animals?
2) "despite predation pressure" is weak. Every species that's
survived to this day has done so.
3) Did the chimps survive in the open country or forest?
