Ethology and Ethics

Post by L'Emmerdeur » Fri Jul 06, 2018 9:43 am

Is it acceptable to use lions as a sort of 'ultimate security guard'? Basically taking advantage of their natural tendency to kill and eat as not only a deterrent, but as a form of extra-judicial execution?

I have no problem admitting that this story brings a smile to my face and really this thread is just a way of sharing that joy, but what the hell, might as well include a gratuitous serious discussion topic as well. :smoke:
'A Pride of Lions Killed and Ate a Group of Rhino Poachers Who Broke Into a Wildlife Reserve'
A group of rhino poachers were eaten by a pride of lions in Kenton-on-the-Sea, according to the owner of the South African wildlife reserve where the incident happened.

The remains of what appears to be three bodies were discovered on the Simbuya Game Reserve along with high power rifles owner Nick Fox said in a statement. Fox said the poachers’ mangled remains are suspected to have been eaten by a pride of six lions who were on the reservation to protect the endangered and highly targeted rhinos who are hunted for their horns.

The poachers entered the reserve with a slew of weapons — including a high-powered rifle with a silencer, an axe, wire cutters and food supplies for a number of days — on the night of July 1 or the early hours of July 2. Fox, who said the reserve has had previous run ins with poachers, said that the supplies found are all the hallmarks of “a gang intent on killing rhino and removing their horns.”

The wildlife reserve’s owners became aware that something was wrong when anti-poaching dogs alerted a handler, who then heard a loud commotion coming from the lions.

Well deserved.

Can we train lions to eat conservatives? :ask:

We should let trophy hunters kill them. I bet there's any number of Great White Hunters who'd jump at the chance.

I hope they were Christians. If it was good enough for the Romans...
