                                                       That's one way one way to eliminate the menace of poaching.

Interesting...didn't eat his head. :hmmm:

Was probably the least nutritious part of the fella's body?

Brain matter is actually incredibly nutritious, but getting to that brain matter is very difficult. The human skull is much harder then people realize and even with the massive jaws of a lion it's probably difficult to crack into without breaking a tooth. My understanding is that the hardest bite among the animal kingdom is actually the hyena. As a result you can apparently tell if a group of hyenas has been involved in a kill if among the remains you find a crushed skull. I seem to remember hearing that on some national geographic type show, but don't quote me.

You missed my irony. Despite the fact that the grey matter of the brain is generally most nutritious and because of the assumed lack of quality of the grey matter in the foolish poacher, due to his dismal decision to poach in the first place, even the lion was less than ready to expend what little effort he would, to crush the skull and eat what was within. It probably didn't smell righ to him. :D

You're right. I read the post so quickly that I didn't even notice your irony. Hopefully the oversight was caused by lack of sleep and not "malnutrition" of the brain.

No worries. Irony is an art and like art, a casual glance or a jaundiced eye can ruin the effect that is intended. :tiphat:

The poacher becomes the prey. I love the irony. Or, in my vernacular, “payback is a medevac.” Stupid poachers.
