JUST in case you missed it thus far, this is one of the most fascinating and widely viewed Youtube videos I’ve seen. Enjoy!

    BBC also put it on – after it had already got millions of hits. There are some good ones of lions eating Korean tourists. Funny.

  • So what, only 27.5|M have seen it so far. Isn’t nature brilliant – The good guys sometimes win.

    I know it’s ‘old’, but I only saw it today!

    When something’s that good, you just gotta share…

    I never get tired of this video.

    I can almost hear that big bull at the beginning, “now you just wait right here, I have a few mates I want you all to meet!”

    Great stuff.

    There are actually some great animal videos on youtube. Check out the cougar fighting the big snake. My favourite is the ions eating the Korean tourist.

    “There are some good ones of lions eating Korean tourists. Funny.”

    “My favourite is the (l)ions eating the Korean tourist.”

    The above from 2 of only 6 posts. One third of your correspondents it seems appreciate the eating of tourists (though to be fair only Korean ones).

    If such warm sentiments are as widely replicated I suspect that the Northern Ireland Tourist Board has its work cut out.

    I must admit I’m still not absolutely 100% convinced it’s genuine……………Trowbridge u about when u r needed ?

  • Dewi

    I know I’m sick …..but anyone got a link to those poor Korean tourists ?

  • I’m still here, Dewi, but I think that you would make more of a difference if you concentrated on real matters closer to home, like stopping Ballymena’s savages from using poor hedgehogs as the ball in their hurling games.

    Just another day in Ceredigion, eh Dewi ? 😉

  • Dewi

    Cruimh – that’s what strange – the little buffalo cub wouldn’t have lasted 30 seconds against Ceredigion young Farmers…………Trow – I can never tell when u r joking !

  • Cruimh

    So true Dewi – Rugby Tour parties fade into insignificance when compared to several young farmers debauches I have attended 🙂

  • Rory

    Viewers are assured that no animals were harmed in the making of this film. Well none that submitted written complaints anyway.

  • DavidD

    I would like to have been a fly-on-the-wall at the lions’ debriefing session after this botched operation.

  • Cruimh

    It couldn”t be described as a roaring success, that’s for sure DavidD 🙂

    I did not realise until seeing this film that buffalo and other herding animals would actually (regroup and) fight lions. I thought they’d just flee. So much for the king of the jungle.

    Good to see they do fight back. I do like the bit where the lioness is thrown into the air, and I hope the partly gnawed buffalo calf has survived.

    Feck ye all. I’m for the croc all the way, poor little fella deprived of a succulent meal…it’s hard enough living in a swamp without that
