There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Well what's the alternative? Do you morally release the animal back into the wild to die on it's own? In his condition, it would probably be a sad, painful death. Not to mention he may have started to hunt people, if he hadn't already.

I mean, I agree but I always thought Sabi Sands had a hands off policy, my guess is he actually tried to attack someone or was being seen a lot around a lodge possibly stalking guests plenty of animals died in the past and they never intervened.

The circumstances on this case called for it, and if you think about it it makes sense: old age, worn out teeth, sickness and the threat of him going to attack people, then it was a good call.

It's an exception, and well applied.
