aw nuts, this terrible. I hope this isn't indicative of future wildlife problems and I hope the family has all the support they need.

This happened a couple of miles from us. The lion seemed all too familiar with people - this isn't an urban area, lots of game, which means the lion wasn't going after people as a last resort. Last week neighbors met the lion twice in two days, it followed them home the second time, came up their steep, long, winding driveway after them. Wednesday another neighbor woke up to find the lion on his deck, a couple of hours later the man who had been stalked started on his morning walk, found the lion waiting for him. He hit it with a beanbag shot. That night the lion attacked a man who was showering outside his cabin, partially ate him. He was found this morning.
