    I tried to sequence the pictures but was unable to do so - sorry!

    If you keep your mouse-curser on the picture it should tell you what number picture it is out of 17

    I think his horns saved him from the male lion. One horn hits him in the throat and his other horn kept him from getting he other paw on his neck. If that was a cow Kudu she would have gone down on that one.

    Hi Marius,

    I just read in "Die Burger" (a leading newspaper) that these photos were taken in Shamwari. Also that the Bull picked up an injury while fleeing and he was taken by the same pride that night? (kyk bietjie Burger se website)

    Groete,
    Petrie.
