BBC - Earth News - People steal meat from wild lions
A few days ago I was complaining that our new bakery had bagels that I didn't love. Then a thing, a story, like this pops up and you realize that we really are living in a cushy bourgeoisie world. Because no matter how much your job sucks, no matter how much you dislike your neighborhood or your state, at least you aren't kill-stealing from starving lions.
Lions in Cameroon are having their kills stolen from under their noses by hungry villagers.
Incidences of such kleptoparasitism, the stealing of food from another, usually occur between top predators such as lion, hyena and cheetah.
But people are increasingly getting in on the act, conservationists say.
They suspect the practice may be much more common than thought, and are concerned that it could threaten the dwindling numbers of lions in Cameroon.
(For the record, I love my neighborhood and even my state.)
