Wall of Death – A daring lion

Lion - Wall of Death

Thanks to PierreD, here is a photo of a lion on a “Wall of Death”. These circus and fair attractions included a fast car rushing on a vertical circular wall. In some cases an animal (preferably a large predator like a lion) was in the car – or the side car.

If you know a little more about these, feel free to comment here. PierreD is very interested in whatever information you would have about the cars invovled (often Maruttis in India, but others too).

A tiger kills a lion

(Wednesday, March 9th, 2011)

This happened in Turkey, in a zoo.

A tiger found a way to leave its cage to meet a neighboring lion. This was in Ankara zoo and the tiger thus demonstrated its superior strength. Or that the lion does not fight well when it is surprised napping after a meal.

There are still six tigers and two lions in the Ankara zoo.
