I never knew they could bring down an animal as big as that:!:

Julie,I recently watched a documentary on lions and elephants where a pride of lions would hang around a waterhole and pull down the elephants as they approached to drink. It was during a drought period, and the elephants had no option but to go to the waterhole, and as a result, most of the herd were killed. Rains arrived and saved the balance. Quite something.

A full grown male lion can weigh in at 300KG !![AND we still find people getting out of their vehicles at lion sightings ]
