I just got home a few hours ago from work and looked through the forum and seen the video from Campbell. My heart is still beating 90 to nothing. I'm always glad when they animal gets away.I remember seeing and hearing the lions at Christmas time last year when they killed a cape buffalo. It seamed like it took forever for the poor buffalo to die. They didn't actually put the camera on the lions making the kill but you could hear the horrible sounds from the buffalo. When it was morning they showed the lions eatting the kill. I was so upset, I couldn't amagine seeing it in person. The lions faces were all bloody and they were just laying around the watering hole because they were so stuffed from eatting so much. I usually don't watch the camera during the week because I work all week from 5am to 1pm so it's dark in Africa when I get home, but I was lucky Christmas was on Monday I think so I got to watch the camera a little more.

No sorry Mike it is just the text and the one photo which was by no means the best one! We have subsequently been approached to buy the material from us but nothing as yet has come of that but whoknows????

I wish you best success. I hope they follow through

Mike you can check out this insert - we made it onto National TV on Veldfocus - feather in our cap but we did not win anything as the other entries were too good: http://www.5050.co.za/inserts.asp?ID=5796

Was there a video link there? At least you tried. If there is a link, I will look at it after lunch....hunger is setting in as I type

Mike lots of people talk about "wanting to see a kill" but I do not think they are prepared for the psychological impact of the kill. When I have witnessed kills I have found myself so immersed in the action at the time that it is only afterwards that the reaction has set in! As I said in my previous posts wild dog kills are fast and furious but incredibly clean and so quick that one year we timed it from start to finish and it was 90 seconds and there was not a scrap of meat left. Some of the dogs that actually made the kill did not even get a show in!

I have seen the results of a wild dog kill and you are right, there is nothing left. The vultures left hungry.

As for the people on this occasion not being psychologically prepared, I think they did not want to see it in the first place. Unfortunately when you are with other people who do want to see it, I think their desires of those wanting to stay should be primary. That is just my personal opinion of course. Since the reserves are not zoos, I would not expect zoo behavior from the animals or those viewing them.
