This is Ridiculous

SABC News reports that the lions that mauled park owner may be put down. This is crazy, people take predators out of their natural habitat, put them in a small enclosure and then blame the animals for following their instincts and helping someone put themself in line for a Darwin award?

: Perhaps I was a bit harsh with my Darwin Award reference. Latest speculation is that the cause of him getting out of his vehicle may have been an epileptic seizure. Whether that is the case or not, friends and family are saying he would not ordinarily have gotten out of the vehicle as he was very careful. I suppose it is pointless to speculate at this stage. Investigations will reveal what happened, or not.

Update: The final word, confirmed by results of the post-mortem examination, is that he was killed by a stroke; probably staggering out of the vehicle shortly before he died. The lions only mauled his body after his death had already occurred.

  1. I do not think he would condone the lions being out down either.
