“Prey”


TANZANIA Through Harold’s Lens:

Slowly our Land Rover rolled down the dusty dirt road through the Serengeti of Maasai country. As we were meandering around a curve I spotted a herd of sheep and goats.

Then I looked behind them.

Spotting this little Maasai carrying the baby lamb all alone on the veld I called “halt”.

Leaping from the Land Rover, I ran about 10 yards, kneeled down and fired my Nikon.

“Predator”


TANZANIA Through Harold’s Lens:

In the dark of night.

From five miles away.

Maasai villagers hear the loud roar of the male lions.

Weighing over 500 pounds, a man-eater is possibly stalking the Maasai village.

While lions do not usually hunt people, man-eating behavior in rural areas of the Serengeti increased greatly from 1990 to 2004.

Lions attacked 815 people killing and eating 563.
