Quote of the Week 12/4-10/11

“Colonel James Stevenson-Hamilton…witnessed what he described as a ‘massacre of baboons’ by a pride of lions. Apparently, a baboon troop had been approaching a water hole and failed to notice the lions napping nearby. The lions awoke and two lionesses rose and quietly hid themselves by the trail. When they leaped out, the baboons panicked and fled–directly into the larger body of lions. ‘The baboons were apparently too terrified even to try to escape up any of the surrounding trees,’ wrote Stevenson-Hamilton, ‘and hid with their faces in their hands while the lions simply struck them down right and left with blows from their paws.'”
