the lion vid update

ok.

here is what I have heard today. The lion that was capped by the guys in this video was hunted down for killing cattle, and it also had been involved in attacking, and killing some natives.

That's why it was blasted....this might be hear say, I don't know for sure...but its what i heard from a guy today...seemed to be Mr outdoors man that knows tons on hunting stuff like this.

BBC WRITE UP

Re: the lion vid update

the guy taking the first and last shot was far from a professional. he was on a guided tour. there is no other excuse for that type of behavior, he was an amatuer looking for a "trophy".

Re: the lion vid update

People come up with funny reasons to justify killing. They could used a tranquilizer gun, transported to game reserve.

Fact is someone paid someone to take them to kill a male Lion. Killed some cattle, sh*t if you were a lion and someone left a tasty steak on your property, would you eat it?

Did the lion have the deed to the property?

Re: the lion vid update

The lion was just doing what it does naturally. That's certainly no reason to kill it. Tranquilize it and move it further away or to a game reserve. There are always other options.

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

I, personally, am not trying to justify it...just pointing out what was going on with it.

PS...I would eat the steak.

Well it's high time somebody did some people killing. Have you seen the population?

Another great site to visit.

I know your not trying to justify it. The reason is just false, and just another way people lie to get what they want.

Oh yeah, animals dont need deeds Figment. The land is just as much theirs, if not more so ,than it is ours. We probably said the same thing to the Native Americans, "Hey, this isn't your land, it ours, we have a deed."

Man though, that lion was in champion shape, see how fast he was? They are so amazing. I wonder what would win in a fight, a Male Lion or Grizzly Bear. Not one for putting animals against each other, saw a cock fight and a dog fight once (Over rated), but a Male Lion and a Grizzly would be one hell of a PPV match. My money would be on the Lion.

Re: the lion vid update

At least it would be fair, no guns. They could get Don King to promote it. A little wiegh in skuffle. Ok I'm bored, but it would be a good fight.

Re: the lion vid update

There is no way that is true
That was not a park ranger, and sadly if the lion had to be destroyed due to who knows what circumstance it would never be filmed.
