I can’t tell you how much I love this pic.
Sorry a man was foolish to test his law-breaking with 3 powerful animals, but imagine the chaos of that scene.
No doubt money was involved in his criminal activity, and he paid dearly. Poaching is illegal, anywhere, whether it be a caribou in Canada, a whitetail deer in Maine, or a rhino on the plains in Africa.
At least the editors were smart enough to not give the deceased the title of ‘hunter,’ as hunters obey all game laws and understand conservation.
But look at that face. Is there any other animal on earth that strikes such fear and wonder such as that, and even from a distance, or seeing the image on a screen? Awesome, no wonder the darn things are called the king of beasts.
Now consider for a moment if you will, this same creature pacing in the den with that man of God Daniel. Hmmm. Daniel did not test God by walking foolishly in the den of hungry animals. Nope, he was tossed in, and therein lies the difference, as God protected him.
The poacher ran unsent, and he pretty much was on his own, so before folks start crying me a river as to ‘where was God,’ we are all accountable for our actions, and it was his fault that his children are now fatherless. People should obey stop signs.
But once more, love that expression up top.
