Gunkid, read The Lions of Tsavo. Somebody forgot to tell them that their wanting to kill and eat people was a hundred years out of date. After the first twenty or thirty food fights with people, they decided it was a lot of fun, so they chopped another hundred or so. Ruark, Capstick, Bell, and every other great African hunter relate their experiences of being charged by wounded and unwounded animals. Where do you come up with this stuff? Have you ever READ them? I'll bet not.

And Terry, these were MATURE animals who no doubt had already been breeding for years. That means they left PLENTY of offspring.

This is just another example of what happens when gunkid post about something he has not a clue about. Arn't you tired of sticking your foot in your mouth, gunkid?

and those lions got killed, just like I SAID that they did. I've read that stuff, and I KNOW what happens to such animals, and SOONER rather than later, too.
That's not what you said. You said the aggressiveness had been bred out of them. When faced with the exact opposite you came up with this statement. The mark of a true habitual liar. I know you haven't read any of the "stuff" because the Tsavo lions were not "killed rather sooner than later" as you state. They killed for months, and actually brought railway construction to a complete halt. Try reading a book. Get away from the keyboard.

Terry G- I have actualy seen the two on display at the museum when visiting relatives in the Chicago area.
I saw them too. It's the Chicago Museum of Natural History, and well worth a visit. 100 years old or not, maneless or not, they are SPOOKY!

If you have not seen the movie, the Ghost and the Darkness, do so. It is the story of these two lions. (And I've also seen them at the field museum in Chicago.)

:devil:

You know that is true, they do have some sort of presence about them.

What's also cool is the Indian totem pole with a sasquatch carving on it.
I love odd stuff like that. :cool:
