I like to play the 'Hungry Lion Game'; order some chicken pieces & try to identify which part of the chicken you got.
Is it similar to the KFC game where there's a fair chance that it's not chicken at all, but an unfortunate street rat that fell into the deep fryer?

Lion escapes and the organisers are like "no, can't have something interesting happen in our marathon, have to keep it boring."

We could've seen records broken with running escaping from the lion.

'Yes. There have been many reports over the years. Farmers living along the river who have seen them generally don't report the sightings. Now after an incident involving one of the lions being shot, others have decided it is time to try and protect the lions. See the latest episode on 50/50 for more detail.

Embezweni Cottage, nice and isolated. No fence or walls around the house. Star Gazing hotspot. Amazing place. When we asked the rangers why there's no fence around the house in a park with lions we were told not to worry. The lions do not walk that far.

Very interesting.

I think it is a great idea along our northern borders! A belt or corridor with a pride or two of lions running free will do wonders for border and population control! :laugh:

LOOK: Escaped Karoo lion headed back home after weeks on the loose

Johannesburg - The hunt for the escaped Karoo National Park lion has finally ended after the lion was successfully darted in the vicinity of the Northern Cape town of Sutherland, South African National Parks (SANParks) said on Thursday.

The animal that escaped from the boundaries of the Karoo National Park in mid-February, was darted in an area around 120 kilometres from the park on Wednesday at 6 pm.
