Apparently the lions had no use for the pants, or alternatively, they weren't fashionable.

Quote:
"Indications found at the scene suggested that a pride of lions had devoured the remains leaving only a human skull and a pair of pants," a national parks statement said.
Service Call and stiffneck like this.

There wouldn’t be poaching of endangered species if it weren’t for the Asian market. And do you know how many sharks are slaughtered just for shark fin soup?

It’s big money and disgusting.

70 million sharks a year killed just for their fins. Then there is the market for animal parts just for ancient medicine, aphrodisiacs, etc. There is poaching in North America as well to serve the Asian market. Itís disgusting.

You haven't had an erection until you've had an erection after snorting dried Kodiak bear gallbladder.

I bet Trump doesn't know this. He should send a few drones over to the shark fin factory. That and ban puppy hunting with AR-15s.

I had it at a Chinese wedding once. It is really delicious. I would never order it myself, but it was part of a 12 course meal and I was up for anything.

I have been searching African Photo Safaris trying to discern which trip we want to take, due to Google word search (I think) I have ended up getting emails from hunting safaris for Cheeta and Elephant kills.


NOT MY THING, the only thing I shoot is with a camera.
