Lions 5, Poachers 0 In Epic Reverse Of Tide That Sends Clear Message: “We’re Still King Of The Jungle”

In a rare twist of fate that is simply epic, some poachers got a taste of their own medicine in Africa this month. Usually, we’re hearing sad stories about how they’ve managed to poach nearly extinct species that are often on the verge of collapse. But once in a while, as it turns out, Mother Nature fights back.

It all went down at the national parks of Zimbabwe. Ten poachers were illegally hunting for elephants inside of the park when they accidently came upon a pride that contained 20 lions.

Big mistake.

The lions defended their turf and attacked the poachers. This resulted in five of them becoming food, three getting severely injured and two being moderately injured. Those who did survive ran away to a nearby village to seek medical treatment. It was there that they were arrested for poaching. Double-whammy.

“The men were visibly traumatized by the attack,” said the park’s Commissioner-General Chihuri,“and after seeing their injuries and the remains of their dead comrades, I can see why. These guys were tough criminals carrying ak-47s, but they were literally shred to pieces and devoured by the lions. I have never seen an animal attack reach this level of violence, and I have seen a lot!”

The surviving poacher’s ordeal is far from over. After they get out of the hospital, they will face up to 25 years in prison and up to $100,000 in fines.

Annually, National Geographic says that 600 wild lions are killed on trophy hunts. About 100 years ago, African lions were numbered at about 200,000. Today, experts say that less than 20,000 remain.

Poaching, loss of habitat, hunting and livestock owner retaliation are the primary causes of the lion’s decline in recent decades.

According to Panthera, “Just over a century ago, there were more than 200,000 wild lions living in Africa. Today, there are only about 20,000; lions are extinct in 26 African countries and have vanished from over 90 percent of their historic range. Though lions still exist in 27 African countries and one Asian country, only seven countries are known to each contain more than 1,000 lions.”

Chalk this rare instance as a win for this pride.

  1. In the grand pattern of things you actually receive an A+ for effort and hard work. Where you actually lost us ended up being on all the facts. You know, they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more correct right here. Having said that, allow me say to you just what did work. The writing is actually highly powerful and that is most likely the reason why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, whilst I can easily see the jumps in logic you come up with, I am definitely not sure of exactly how you appear to connect your points which in turn make the conclusion. For right now I will subscribe to your point but wish in the future you actually link your dots much better.

  2. Magnificent goods from you, man. I’ve take into accout your stuff prior to and you are simply extremely magnificent. I really like what you’ve received right here, really like what you are stating and the best way wherein you assert it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to keep it wise. I cant wait to learn far more from you. This is actually a great site.

  4. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

  17. One thing I want to say is always that before getting more personal computer memory, look into the machine into which it can be installed.
