    Lion Hunt Anyone?

    This video is crazy...I would have dropped a load in my pants if that was me.

    How many shots did they fire before they hit it?

    Hitting something heading at full speed right at you is NOT easy with a rifle. Dude is lucky he lunged aside and the lion wasn't right on target to begin with.

    It's sad they call themselves hunters when it takes 4 people all with scoped rifles to shoot an animal.
    My brother and I were brutal. I once chased him around the house with a spoon that I put on the burner. I burned that little pricks leg. -sharkall2003

    Then I saw a little african boy sleeping, and I thought...that is little Okeke. he is tired from herding all the goats and the big goat got away today - Rock

    It's not even a hunt. People go to Africa and pay big bucks to lion raisers to kill one of their lions. They get there and there's basically a lion standing in a fenced-in plot of land.

    I guess it makes those guys feel like they have big wangs since they shot a lion.

    Power in the form of the destruction of life... real respectable. I just wish the lion had hit the mark, would have been that much more entertaining.

    Frankly I'm surprised the lion was able to equate sharp stabbing pain with 'pack of things over there'. Lashing out at only viable targets?

    i have a wealthy friend who deos that kind of stuff

    his dad shot an elephant in africa last year

    don't agree with it

    but, the elephant hunting biz has made them more valuable to keep alive than to poach them, so the populations are surging

    The meat is usually given to the natives, or possibly sold. The hunters don't get to take the meat home. Only the skin and head. Elephants usually cost between $100,000-$150,000. This info is all taken from an older couple that me and my dad did some work for who are big game hunters.

    Poetic justice would be if these "big game hunters" got kidnapped and released on an island and then got hunted by head hunteres or something. That would be karma right there baby.

    Along the premise of that book The Deadliest Game, if any of you have read it.

    I'll agree that the lion deserved to own them but ... why exactly could we do with another lion?

    Lions are dangerous. They are bigger than us, stronger than us, faster than us. They are predators. Given the chance they would eat our young as they have been doing around african villages for as long as there have been lions and villages.

    What purpose does a lion or any big cat serve, really? Keep the gazelle population down? We can do that ourselves... and gazelle don't eat what we eat. Let them eat enough grass that large numbers of them die off... so what?

    If an animal can't adapt to the changes we make to the world or our predations then it fails Darwinism 101 ... it is not fit therefore it does not survive. I don't weep for the polar bears dying to climate change, feel remorse for the seals slaughtered, or give a rat's ass about the whales and dolphins caught by accident in our nets (any more than I care about said rat's asses that we kill by the millions every year. Despite our efforts to wipe them out rats persist: They are fit and therefore worthy.).

    I only care about the species wiped out by environmental stresses as warning signs for our own species' survival. Other than that I won't particularly mourn the passing of the last great white shark, even if they are cool as all hell.

    Hahn, I don't support poaching, but what more do you want? Would you rather those guys smear their faces in mud and crawl through the brush with hatchets clenched in their teeth or something?

    maaaaan I wish that lion owned them. Saw a vid of a big male lion owning a hunter and it gave me a sweet sensation inside.
    A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.

    No offense, but you know very little about ecosystems and how animals of predator and prey interatct with one another. An animal like a Lion or a Tiger is the back-bone, the indicator of how the entire ecosystem is that area is doing. This place would be pretty boring if there were no animals at all, just people and wall to wall buildings. I guess you'd have no problem if right now someone knocked down your door and killed your entire family with a shotgun because well, "If an animal can't adapt to the changes we make to the world or our predations then it fails Darwinism 101 ... it is not fit therefore it does not survive." People killing animals with guns is not Darwinism

    Where's the hunt? I see an animal that will hold its ground, not run. I also see 4 men with rifles shooting at the same animal-is that really hunting?
    I always thought the word hunt implied some sort of challenge, I guess I was wrong.

    I don't see a correlation between crazy shotgunning a family and killing of a top level predator. One is detrimental to yourself (as you'll probably get caught and sent to prison forever or be executed) and the other is better for your species as a whole.

    Besides, we have adapted to people kicking in doors and killing everyone. That's how it used to be even just a few hundred years ago during raids between nations or tribes. The human race is still here despite that. Laws and social conditioning were our cultural evolution.

    I'm mainly playing devil's advocate here, for the record. My true thoughts are as simple as I don't care what lives or dies as long as it's not us as a species or something we like eating or petting. Keep the chain intact that feeds the chickens, cows, pigs, cats, and dogs and I'm good.
