The Kruger Lions Stalk And Kill A Hippo…Don’t Watch If You’re Squeamish
The Kruger lions are hungry and on the prowl and what’s on the menu for the big cats…from all appearances, hippo is the special of the day.
Nature is an unforgiving force on the face of the earth, she has no guilt and no pity for predator, or prey. Now, when I was a kid, I loved to watch the nature documentary films that were shown on The Wonderful World of Disney, which aired every Sunday night on NBC. In the 1950’s and throughout the 1960’s, if you were a kid, your little backside was parked in front of the television between 7:00pm to 8:00pm every Sunday evening. The reason I liked the animal documentaries on Disney, was that nobody got killed and eaten. The cute little bunny rabbit always managed to escape from the mean rattlesnake, and the gazelle always managed to out-run the hungry ferocious lions (it was a “family show” after all).
With the advent of the world wide web, sadly, you can simply “Google” anything you want and watch it , no matter how violent, or disgusting. In the video below, while on safari, some people managed to capture on video, a pride of lions attacking a hippo cow and her calf. Unlike the Disney shows, this episode does not have a happy ending for the hippos. The video was shot at the end of October in 2008, in South Africa at Kruger National Park. And to show you how times have changed, it’s the lions that are the main attraction for safari-goers. Everyone that travels through the park have their video cameras at the ready, for a chance to see one of the lions make a kill.
My…how times have changed. Remember, if you are the squeamish type, you shouldn’t watch the video below…it doesn’t end well for the hippos.
