I didn't realize until now that they killed the lion.  It was probably necessary given the situation, but goddamit.  The lion was just, you know, being a lion.  And it kinda sounds like the victim was too busy talking on her cell phone to pay attention to what she was doing - perhaps forgetting to lock the gate.

You would think so, but then you're probably not the sort of person who raises a child to be so convinced that she has "empathic" superpowers such that a lion she had "connected" with would never attack her.

Yes I am always amused when people fark with wild animals and then are surprised when they are injured.  The bad part about it is the captive animal is almost always killed for its "crime."

Theoretically, its certainly possible that the boyfriend murdered her and tossed her body in the lion cage to be mauled.

DROxINxTHExWIND: theorellior: DROxINxTHExWIND: What the fark is unclear about a lion attacking a slow-moving piece of meat with small teeth and no claws to defend itself?

I read somewhere that most predators don't much care for humans if other game is available. Evidently we're very bony with not a lot of meat on us. I'll have to see if I can find the article.

Yeah, I know what they SAY, but I totally disagree. Lions will kill and eat a prarie dog. They'll all fight over the scraps if one of them kills a small deer. They eat baby warthogs and other small animals all of the time. I think its just conditioning. Lions and other predators have learned to be wary of humans, just like they would be for other dangerous animals. Especially game that is frequently hunted or poached. But, I think we taste just fine to them once they get past that initial fear.


Well if the domestic cat is anything to go by, cats will just kill things because they can. They don't always eat what they kill, and they aren't even necessarily hungry when they kill something. I suspect something only needs to be killable in order to trigger the instinct in a cat, large or small, to kill it.

FarewelltoArms: If you notice, it's always white people who are getting eaten by lions and such.

White people need to learn, lions are not friendly. They will eat you.

Black people learned this lesson for hundreds of thousands of years, so you don't see dumb little teenage black girls going into lion enclosures.


No, it's only news if a white woman gets eaten. It's very similiar to the "missing white woman" category of news

Hooray for my second green light.

Makes me sad that they kill the lion for being a lion.

Can we please stop with this man-eater nonsense? What the fark is unclear about a lion attacking a slow-moving piece of meat with small teeth and no claws to defend itself? As Chris Rock would say, that lion didn't go crazy. That lion went lion.

the lion could've used jelly or syrup
it prefers syrup

I remember that from some prison show so long ago.  Wasn't that some HBO special or something?

chris rock's "bring the pain" special, if i remember correctly. he was talking about a show he had watched about life in prison, and about the subject of "tossed salads", a term used for analingus. he said the inmate being interviewed said you can add "jelly or syrup...i prefer syrup" in order to add flavor and help take your mind off of the true nature of the task which is being performed


I think I could have gone my entire life without that explanation and mental picture...

better article I like the quote in there from her father:
Hanson knew that she was not supposed to be in the same area with the lion (and if the coroner is correct, she apparently she wasn't). However, her father told The Associated Press that Hanson is frustrated that she was not allowed to have contact with the large cats.

People should be careful what they wish for!

Maybe cancer saw that the lion was about to get a domination victory, so it ganked her right before the lion finisher her off.
