    Lion kills SA woman in Zim

    Pretoria - A South African woman who worked at Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage in Zimbabwe was killed when she was attacked by an adult lion on Tuesday morning.

    Robyn Lotz, 26, from Pretoria, whose life's mission was caring for and rehabilitating neglected and injured wild animals, was attacked after a worker presumably didn't close the gate to the lion's cage properly.

    "Unfortunately Robyn and two other workers were nearby. The lion grabbed Robyn by the back of her head.

    "Although it was just a few minutes before Kevin (a staff member) brought the rifle, to the people involved, it felt like the attack lasted for hours," the post states.

    Lotz was immediately rushed to the Mater Dei hospital where the staff battled to save her life.

    "She died just after 10:00. It's the first time in the 37 years since Chipangali's establishment that something like this has happened, and we're making sure it will be the last time," the post continues.

    Is it just me or should someone have already been standing by with a rifle? Hello! It's a WILD animal not a kitty cat.

    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    Someone must have told her to feed the lion.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army
