  1. “I love lions”. Easy to love something you can see in picture books, movies, and safely behind glass or bars.

    Wondet how much you would love it if it could just stroll through your backyard.

    Probably about as much as people who have to live near polar bears or gators.

    Funny how people grow up when having to deal with things including diverse people directly.

  2. He does not look strong enough to kill a lion without a weapon. However, the lion got a piece of him, so it looks like self defense. Big cats have enormous fast twitch muscle strength. I play wrestled with a 180lb male mountain lion briefly, with the owner nearby. Even play wrestling you can see a human is no match. I was weight training back then and at my peak too at 202lbs ripped. If it were a life and death struggle, I would have been dinner.

    There is no indication of how he overcame the lion in the story. Unless he killed lion with a rear naked choke, I do not see how he killed it?
