I'm thinking a couple test sites wouldn't hurt, New York's Central Park and LA's Sunset strip.

My post was to imply that the lions could only eat 2 or 3 fat Americans before becoming full.

Yep, and the Village Chief is at fault for leaving those running shoes in quicksand.

One would think there'd be a rifle or 2 in each village. Lacking that I thought they traditionally used bows.

The only bow and arrows in Africa is in American movies.
They have fire harden spears and never developed the technology of a sling or bow and arrow.

"If this had happened in America the lions could have only eaten a couple of people. Maybe three at the most."

GangGreen has teams working in many nations, diligently having laws, cooperative agreements, ad nauseam, passed and paid for with either American government money or American non-governmental organization money.

In short, the people in those places where cats are eating people like India and Africa see American money being spent on cats which eat them!

What a wonderful way to buy affection and respect for America!

The GangGreen, & the animal whacko, crowd has managed to get laws passed such that here in America one shoots bear, wolves, or cougar only at the risk of years of jail time.

And a Seig Heil! to those wonderful volk at the Demokratische Partei for passing so many gun bans, including parks, etc., so that while the 2nd Amendment is still on the books, it practically unavailable to the average citizen.

Here in the Sheeples Republic of FloriDUH, all of Florida below Lake Okeechobee has been socialized except for a narrow coastal srtip where hold out populations such as Miami and Naples are located.

All the rest is now part of the Wild Lands Project and except for hunting season in the Big Cypress Preserve, guns are illegal.

And hunters must drive on "paths" in a habitat so difficult to traverse that a friend of mine made the decision not to return Delta Force's Urban Attack Team because it "was suitable only for training with helicopter or tracked vehicle support."

But GangGreen and a consortium of state and federal agencies and their swarms of 'crats passed regs forcing the average citizen to walk where the people who eat Rambo for breakfast in the real world won't walk.

And most of the time, one attempts such a walk unarmed - like the Ethiopians. And all of the time if one is in the much larger Everglades National PArk instead of the Preserve.

The end result is the remaining handful of property owners have to put up with cougar (with kittens) running deer right past camp fires with people sitting around the fire, cats walking fifteen feet away from retired Americans with Parkinsons, etc.

I went to an interagency public information meeting and listened to the fattest 'crat I have ever seen (could have fed that entire pride for one night, for sure!) saying that one of their big cat program in India resulted in a tiger going into a house and eating a native.

His most telling comment followed the admission of the man eater's attack on the woman - "We have a dilemma."

I couldn't help involuntarily saying to myself "Dilemma, Hell! - Shoot 'em". But I forgot to be a "good Green citizen", thought out loud, and the entire gathering heard it in the silence that descended at Fat 'Crqat's comment sank in and realization hit.

Every head turned, and then turned back to Fat 'Crat and all was silent for a few seconds.

Fat 'crat has had his snout in the government trough so long that he has forgotten that government serves the citizens, it does not serve the citizens to large bodied predators.

And the most disturbing part was that Fat 'Crat turned out to be a basically nice person, just one who was willing to condemn people to being eaten by predators.

Worse yet was that he saw nothing wrong with causing such deaths as part of his job. I couldn't help thinking of the German death camp personnel who left each day and went home to listen to Wagner. Just another day's work.

And the bureaucrats doing this are basically just everyday Americans. Fat'Crat was eager to communicate the "value" of such projects and spent some time after the meeting talking to me about his work.

Somewhere, some how, America has made some very seriously bad decisions regarding the value of predators versus the value of human life. I am not sure either American citizens, or any third world peasent is going to continue to tolerate such behavior by either the cats or the 'crats.

Both lions are maneless males and are larger than average. Col. Patterson shot them both, unlike the movie.
