    Hi tcox4freedom, these are videos in the post. It isn't the situation you have described, or at least it doesn't appear to be. Please take a look and see what you think. I would love to know, what you think was going through this lion's head, for him to do something like this.
    I agree, someone has to take out the trash....

    He is obviously a misogynist.
    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    Tranquilizer guns:
    It would take longer than ten minutes to notice what is going on, call for the gun, dose it up, arrive on scene, hit the lion (and not miss), and for the drug to take effect.

    Dosing is a science, not something that one would eyeball. You'd have to have an accurate weight on the target animal plus knowledge of any health or condition factors that could affect response.

    Many states only permit licensed veterinarians or other trained and licensed persons to use tranquilizer guns.


    My best speculation is that the killing instinct took over and what might have started as play or a dominance gesture turned into a killing.

    Lions are not endangered in zoos. If this one does it again, or anything like it, he needs to be culled.
    ...SCOTUS says we're right...You don't like it. I'm sorry you don't like it. I guess that's a problem for you. Some people don't like gays. Some don't like alcohol. Some don't like meat. ~michaelzwilliamson

    Why didn't zoo officials use a stun gun?

    Let's see you walk up to a lion with a stun gun and tazer it...easier said than done. Tazers don't work on everyone or everything and tranquilizers take time. Also, it's a lion. If you mess up or the tazer or tranquilizer doesn't work, you or somebody else is going to be very painfully slaughtered before becoming dead. And why does it matter that the lion is a "she?" Lionesses do all the hunting and they're the most dangerous of the species and the males fight off other males for control of the pride. It's how cats work. They love to kill things, even each other. Many times, they will play with the dead body before they eat it. You've seen cats before, right? Your sexism is showing again.

    P.S. I have an 8 year old cat named Buddy. Sometimes, he kills strays and eats them. Once, he befriended a stray, played with him for weeks and then inexplicably killed him. But then again, he is a cat. And that's what cats do. If you don't believe me, get a pet cat and watch him. Then go to the zoo and watch the lions and tigers. Besides the size and aggression level, there's really not much of a difference in the way cats behave with other members of their species.

    Lions are only one of the species, besides man, that kill each other.
    It is not uncommon for them to kill each other.
    For females and the right to breed.
    To other males who challenge for dominance.
    And for territory as well.

    And just for the hell of it...

    THAT ladies and gents is why they are called wild animals.
