I'll just bet there is some sort of "You can't kill lions" law behind all this.

You beat me to it. National Geographic had a report on mane less male tsavo lions last year and they are more aggressive than in other areas due to lack of resources.

You bet correctly. May I suggest checking post 131 for more details?

It's hard to imagine the horror.

Paging Val Kilmer.

The Ghost and the Darkness is an excellent movie and based on a true story from the late 1800's, similar to this tragedy. I hope the Ethopians can get the problem under control.

Never blame Nugent. He is always ready to kill it and grill it. If I were Ted, I wouldn't want to go to Ethiopia for any reason.

Time to air drop a PETA swat team with their posters and nude point girls.

Seriously though.....at least the lions are eating to survive. On the LA freeways people kill one another just because they're mad and have a short fuse that day.

In Detroit, people kill people one another for little rocks just to feel better for a while and to steal $20.

Mother nature has her way of taking care of 'those in the wild'.

"In the article it says they are going to kill all the lions."

What amazes me is that there was any hesitation about killing the entire pride. Once predators get accustomed to a prey source, they will continue to see it as a potential food source as long as they live.

Since the world has no shortage of lions, the hesitation is unjustifiable except as some GangGreen delusion that man and lion can co-exist without the lions being kept afraid of man by guns.

The first Yellowstone Park Chief Naturalist, William P. Simpson summed up the situation on page 109 of his Yellowstone Park Nature Book where he says that wolves "learned to their great sorrow that nearly every man and boy was armed."

Simpson attributed said prevalence of firearms to be the reason Americans never suffered the continuous wolf attacks recorded in Eastern Europe and Asia.

Might I point out that when the GangGreen crowd banned hunting cougar with dogs, the approximately 100 year long lack of cougar attacks on humans shortly came to a halt.

As the now unafraid cougar began to first grow accustomed to not being killed by any human who saw them, then to attacking, then to killing and eating humans, GangGreen defended the cats all the way.

Don't worry about killing off all predators. They will be here long after America has vanished.

Worry more about survival of the society that allows you to live like an American, not an Ethiopian.

speaking of a**holes, wonder how long it would take the pride to devour this creature?...



That would be the same dilemma that faced that cartoon kid on the old Tootsie Pop commercial (how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? The world may never know...)
