King cat


Lion imagery has been around for as long as man has been making art. Ancient cave drawings include the king of beasts. This is a folky stone carving of a lion head. While perusing the Internet for lion information, I discovered that it is apparently still OK to trophy hunt lions. A company in Kentucky will help you do just that. In fact, they're offering a special. A five-day hunt in South Africa that used to cost $35,500 is now just $25,500. I guess the slow economy has provided a reprieve for the threatened lion. My wife was in Zimbabwe last year and actually approached and touched a young lion at a preserve. It cost her very little, but then all she bagged were a few photos and a story to tell.
