6 minute Video– The man-eating lions of Tsavo & Mfuwe are the stuff of nightmares. They developed a taste for human flesh and hunted them as prey. This is the only public display of man-eaters in the world, that I’m aware of. Chicago’s Field Museum has all 3. The lions of Tsavo were accused of murdering over 100, hunting humans as a pair, which had never been witnessed before. The Man-Eater of Mfuwe ripped women & children from within their very homes & village. Find out about their rampage, what they did, how to visit, & look into the eyes of these infamous man-eaters, the last thing their victims ever saw.
