FOR most people, bumping into a pack of 15 bloodthirsty lions tucking into a fresh kill would be enough to make you turn around and run like you’ve never ran before. But, as these images show, for humans searching for a meal in the harsh terrains of Africa, it is an opportunity to feast.

Incredibly, tribespeople in Africa are now regularly stealing food from packs of lions, as these three hungry men demonstrate. Their hunt for dinner begins by finding the tracks of a lion pride on the hunt for food.  The oldest member of the group - at 65 - leads the way, and it’s not long before they come across the signs of a fresh kill. In images which would otherwise terrify most of us, the trio soon stumble across 15 lions tearing into a dead wildebeest.

Their huge teeth can be seen dripping with the blood of their kill. But instead of making a sharp exit, the men - who are massively outnumbered by one of the world’s most feared predators - begin to plan their attack.

Acting as one to hopefully intimidate the pack, the trio all stand up together and confidently walk towards the lions. Initially nothing happens, enough to shred the nerves of anyone. But incredibly, as the men confidently stroll towards the group, a number of the lions begin to run away, obviously fearing for their own lives. –MO
