the sad thing is his kids witnessed the whole sordid event .
There is a difference between the Tsavo maneaters and this pride, of course. The Tsavo pair were clearly targeting the workers, had found humans easy prey, and had to be hunted down and killed. This group just had a guy walking up to them, doing everything to get eaten except rub himself down with Ketchup! And as for the comment on the video that "the terrain prevented using the cars to drive off the lions", well, if you can drive an R4 into there, it can't have been too rough. As someone rightly said: Darwin Award!
Good thread but Does anyone here ever check out snopes or other fact checking sites? That video was a total fake. Its been discredited for years.
Knowing that its a fake actually makes it pretty funny.
Well if thats true, then I guess we are just a bunch of gullible fools. Looked pretty real to me, but I never checked its authenticity.
Don't worry sest, snopes said DHS did not buy 2 billion bullets too, article has been deleted from their site, but I remember reading it on their site. So yes, I guess they think I'm a gullible fool as well. Guess it's a conspiracy theory, even though the government has admitted to it.
Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that at all.
I worked as film editor for 15 years and it just didn't look right to me, there were cutaway shots in a live action film. Really? And the the shot of the lion running off with the camera and showing the last shot he took...all the angles were wrong. Too many scenes appeared to be staged so i did some searches on snopes and other fact sites.
If it makes you feel better i believed the national geo pic of the shark trying to eat the guy on the ladder of the helicopter a few years ago was real....it looked real to me.
No offence taken here. I wasnt directing my comment to you, just the situation. I only watched the vid once and that was some time ago. This is a pretty old thread. You may very well be correct. If so, makes you wonder why people dummy up stuff like this.
Thank God,,between the discussion on Black Mambas and this Video,I was starting to think of foregoing my Africa trip and spending my Money On Buffets and Hookers in Las Vegas
:nonono:Now that's dangerous territory - especially if the wife finds out!unch:
No Problem there,,,My wife Divorced me and married her refrigerator
after a lot of searching in my old books i came to the story behind the story of these 3 photos
apparently a well known south african by the name of Jack Seale took these photo's during the production of a film.
Jack trained this lion for this role.

hope it will clear up some of the mystery
Interesting! Thank you for taking the time to do the research Willem, much appreciated.
That certainly makes more sense given the stance the young man is taking in relation to the lioness.
He looks like someone setting up to wrestle.
You would think that someone would be running if they could.
Thanks for digging in the library Willem.
I'm sorry but I'm with you guys the only one I feel sorry for is the family its a hell of a way to find out that your husband is dumber then a box of rocks and thats insulting the box of rock. Its like the tourist in Alaska that climbed in to the Polar Bear Habitat to get better pictures stupid is as stupid does and then some of the people wanted to put the bear down for attacking the tourist go figure, heck you enter my home with out my permission I'm going to attack you to.
Hey I want a report with lots of pics when you get back from Las Vegas! :rofl:
