Anybody seen this video of the guy who shoots the lion, and has it come charging at him? They miss point blank and luckily they had 3 guns in the hunting group??

In before the video is posted.

I have it downloaded on my office computer.

It has a slow motion run at the end, that shows the guide shooting the lion twice at point-blank range that saves the hunter from a possibly deadly mauling.

Pretty damned dramatic.

I'd probably pull for the lion. Fire away.
Link Posted: 1/19/2006 7:05:02 AM EDT
That's a canned hunt. That video was shot in Texas if I remember correctly. The lion was "released" inside a fenced enclosure to provide the dickless-wonders a chance to face the king of beasts and kill it with no need for any real hunting prowess at all.

Absolutely disgusting that some people have so little respect for an animal like that. I wish the lion ripped every one of them to shreds.

As for the vid, no clue where it can be found.

If you listen you'll hear him scream like a little bitch when the Lion jumps at him.

If he hit it, he was using something awfully small, as the PH's should be using "charge busters".

He gave both barrels and the lion did not slow down much.

You have proof that was shot in TX?
If not, shut yoru pie hole. There was alot of debate over that video and it boils down to this;
1. Nobody knows for sure were that video was shot.
2. THe PH in the video should have had his lic taken away as he is responsible for everyone in the group.
3. From teh video there is NO way to tell if its canned or not. Africa is filled with fences, many to keep cats OUT.
4. It could have been a cull hunt in which case maybe that lion was in a fenced area he was not supposed to be.
5. Wishing that an animal were to have "ripped everyone of them to shreds" based on ZERO facts or only the video is weak and shows your shallow perception of life.


You can whine all you want but at the end of the day if it were not for the trophy hunter in africa, there would be a handlful more animals on the extinct list.
If you dont know the facts, dont spread rumors!

The voices and accents don't sound real "Texas" but that may not mean much. If it was a canned hunt then I have to smile a little inside that the Lion came close to punching that guys ticket. That thing looked like a frieght train coming in right at the end.

What I heard is that it was Africa, the lion had jumped a fence and already killed several villagers. Once a lion gets the taste of human blood they don't stop. They will keep killing, so it had to be shot. The hunter had a license and was called in to put the lion down to keep it from eating more people.

I have no way of backing that up, that's just what I read a long time ago when I first saw the video posted. I couldn't find anything about it on snopes (not that I think they're always right anyway).

This turned into a pissing contest quite fast.

As for the video, thats why I stick to deer, their teeth aren't big and sharp, and they eat veggies

Until then, we ALL are just guessing.

Canned hunt or not, as the one guy said before... If your hunting a dangerous animal and it gets the best of you, dont look to mean old me for any sympathy cause I'm all out right now. On the flipside if you're hiking and get mauled by a bear or mountain lion that you didnt set out to kill, thats a different story. How does lion taste anyway?


And yeah that looks like a damn good reason to take a FAL with you... or better yet a BAR(the real kind with a pistol grip and happy switch)

I've spent months in Africa, Cape Hunter...have you?

Before you hop on your holier than thou saop box, try to understand that you know NOTHING about me or my range of experience. Ever see a sun rise from the top of Kilimanjaro? Ever hike hundreds of miles along the Great Rift Valley? Ever wake up in a tent in the Serengeti to see lions stalking 30 feet away? Seem a man have a Cape Buffalo horn pushed through his chest cavity and dragged 50 yards through a forrest while attached to the horn? Stop me when you can produce a "yes" to any of this, mmmmm k?

I know why herds are culled in Africa and the benefits to it. Trophy hunters make me SICK, they do NOT hunt because they care for the health of game populations...and it's a well founded disgust in my experience. Pure ego driven bullshit...but that's just my opinion.

Listen, I know the benefits to hunting certain African game, or any game for that matter. It is necessary.

What I'm talking about is the MIND SET of the trophy hunter. In my experience, they are NOT fueled by ecological concerns for a healthier African game population.

In my experience, they are driven by ego. Not food for a family, or to dispatch a dangerous animal, or any sincere desire for the benefit of the larger good of whatever animal species the kill. In MY experience, their ego is their sole motivation, and to be perfectly honest, a lion lives a VASTLY more noble existance than some douche bag that can cough up $15,000 to go to Africa and return with the head of a lion to stick on his wall, simply to continue to fuel his ego.

Agreed.
IMHO, the biggest mistake was not hammering him down at hte first shot. The PH should have taken a follow up RIGHT after the hunter made his first shot.
Gotta go!~
