This is just going to keep happening! Humans keep flouncing around where they shouldn't be!! As soon as the animal does what it's born to do it's punished!!! Stupid stupid humans X2!!!!!

This is a sad story - but it ultimately had to happen, but in NO way were the animals responsible for the action. Animals in Zimbabwe are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Zimbabwe is a disaster zone and Mugabe's army and his rampaging war veterans are nothing but a bunch of savages that belong in the stone age. They have killed virtually ALL the animals in all the parks in Zim and there is absolutely NO WAY that the animals that are left, have been severely traumatised. We know how people act in situations like this - how can an animal be any different.

SORRY, SORRY - just read my post and I made a mistake. What I meant to say is that "there is absolutely NO WAY that the animals that are left, ARE NOT severely traumatised". I also feel (and this is my PERSONAL opinion) that the only way that things are going to turn around in Zim, is if Mugabe is taken out with a bullet and the day that happens, I will personally throw a party !! I hate him intensely and he reminds me of Hitler with his stupid little moustache under that huge thing on his face that he calls a nose !!!

ZCTF news reports and messages from Johnny Rodrigues have shared the tragic deaths these past few months of conservationists killed by elephants, a rhino and now the tragic death of this man by 5 lions near a nature reserve! The 'uneasiness' of the animals is as Johnny Rodrigues has mentioned over and over again, due to poaching that Mugabe clearly is not interested in helping to stop! In fact, his 'party' proves that this man has no business being president of Zimbabwe. I hope and pray he will be ousted too, meanwhile, it is up to the Global Community, to us, to raise our voices louder and longer to ensure the safety of the magnificent wildlife that needs protection in Zimbabwe.

Animals are fighting back for their survival. The man took a risk and lost. None of us are given any guarantees...
