So they were singing 'Born free' just one time too many?

"Simon told us Bredenhand had wanted to show him how big the lions were when one of the males attacked him," said Le Roux.

Two other lions, another male and a female, also attacked Bredenhand. All three lions were put down on Sunday shortly after the attack.


Fark that... this dude played with fire and got burned, the lions were just doing exactly what anyone would expect them to do...

Damnit so much, I hate it when this crap happens. Lions kill things and eat them, the fark did they need to end the lives of 3 animals because one dipshiat human got what he deserved.

So stupid...

Judging by the videos a lot of my friends are posting on Facebook, lions are wonderful creatures capable of so much love and handing out hugs now, so this story must be false.

Unfortunately they've now learned that humans are delicious.

Can you imagine the frustration of being a lion in a zoo, constantly surrounded by thousands of cooing piles of soft, delicious meat, always just out of reach? Now that they've got the taste for our delicious flesh, keeping them alive would only be torture.

In fairness though, we should at least let 'em eat a few more before putting 'em down.

Pay attention. The big cats do what big cats do, and then the lawyers do what lawyers do. In the San Francisco tiger case, I believe the zoo wound up paying damages because the tiger pit didn't meet the letter of the law regarding height of wall or somesuch (despite having successfully contained tigers for decades).

I agree. Lions were just doing what lions do. Hopefully Darwin took care of the moron before he had a chance to breed.

...they missed all the action.

Lesson learned: Keep a set of charged batteries in your camera at all times. There won't always be time to stop at Walgreens.

Heinlein nailed it:

Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.

Well, the premise of putting down critters that eat people, even stupid people, is that now the critters have a taste for human blood, and are quite likely to realize humans are tasty and try to eat them in the future. Innocent humans, like trainers or caretakers or wotnot.

Not saying it's right. Just that's the premise.

Is there a way short of this that cats can acquire the taste for human flesh? It'd be awesome to have guardcats ;)
