That is one of my favorite stories. What was in the movie "The Ghost and the Darkness" wasn't as near as facinating as the truth.
And did you see the picture of the hunter with the first of the lions he shot? (I'll see if I can find it)
It was a monster!
Both of these look like females to me.It was a great movie.
I remember as a kid reading a book about a tiger in India that took over 20 people before a hunter killed it. I always thought it would be a great story to make into a movie.
BTW one of my mentors in college who was a professor of geology, killed a tiger that was a man eater.
They found jewelry in its digestive tract when the gutted it.
He showed me its hide and it was a magnificent animal, even dead.
