Ditto frizz, those pieces of shit should be strung up and fucking hung out to dry/die.

Fucking Yanks!

I was rooting for the lion to at least get a good chunk of face flesh off one of them, or even better for one of the wankers to shoot another by accident.

Why the fuck do then not just take a machine gun...

Erm that lion might have been ravaging local villagers, I very much doubt they were poaching.

It didn't feel like it was for the good of any villagers mate. Their high fives and whoops made it feel like they were on a game hunt tbh. Since when do the troubled villagers import yanks over to save them from lions?

Surely the high fives were for the guy who just survived nearly having his face ripped off by a rampaging lion? A way of releasing the built up adrenaline?

And the South African guide? The ending where it lists the 2 "Hunting" companies involved - both south african....

It was captive game. Bred for people to come and shoot at.

I'm surprised they didn't shoot each other, ff/on.
I think thats testament to how crap they actually were.

Although, I'm sure if there was a Brit in there, the Yanks woulda managed to hit him somehow.

No I'm not. Admittedly I didn't see hte credits first time around, but you can't assume that man with gun = bad and lion = fluffy. I don't know a lot about conservation in Africa, but perhaps the local Lion population was too high, perhaps it was a rogue and attacking villages, perhaps it was old and a bit senile, and needed putting down. Maybe it was game. I don't know, I just thought it was an interesting video of a big scary Lion attacking somebody, I didn't draw any conclusions from it.

They really don't look professional.
If the "officials" need to put down a lion they ride upto it with a jeep and shoot it from the roof....

There's no question that it was a hunt. For fun.

I hope all involved die horribly.

No, really.

It has nowt to do with this Tom but I came home this morning after watching my dad shit his insides out, I got a cup of coffee and sat down to browse threw these forums to take my mind off stuff slightly, I see this post and expect it to be a film of your kittens fooling around. I really am not falling out with you Tom, you are a mate, it just needs to be removed or at the least some warning putting up.

What a humane way to put it down.

I haven't watched it and I'm not going to, as it sounds as if I'll spend the day crying.

I don't understand, what's the big deal about a video of a lion hunt?

No big deal really in posting the video, for education purposes if nothing else. What they were doing was grim as fuck however.

That kitty is a feking Neo of the animal world.

First shot, dodges it.

Then the kitty goes.."Hmm, only four riflemen..i can take em!"

And surely, afterknocking some sense into the shooters, manages to get away for a while still.

RIP for one of the bravest kitties around. :clap:

It's just a shame it didn't manage to inflict a fatal injury on that guy.

Just goes to show, if there were four lions and four riflemen...

Well...let's just say that the riflepeeps would be safaritoast right about now :D

I say it's a victory for the animal kingdom.

Victory? It had the shit shot out of it, and it appeared to be injured as it made the attack.

I've just been reading (in a magazine, scientific american I think) that they've decided to come to an agreement. Hunters (whoever) are allowed to hunt older lions for game (or fun or whatever) but not younger lions who, you would assume, are heads of prides. Apparently it's a big problem and is hitting the population of lions feircly.

One against four, the lion was cosidered toast as it began.

I say it's a victory 'cause the lion atleast fought back and didn't lay down and die.

Hmm, that's not an old lion, so I have my doubts about this being part of an approved cull (coupled with the fact that the "hunters" are clearly shit - if you can't kill a lion with a scoped rifle from...what...40 yards? You shouldn't be allowed near a rifle). I'm not sure that was a real lion kill.

looks like poaching, or a "hunt" to me.

Shame the guy didn't get hurt badly... would have served him right.
