    wow! Is he going to eat it? Cause I thought lions only killed hyenas when they were harassed. What a shot!

    And the lion looks so cool! With his big, dark mane he must be a little older.

    This is so rare to see, let alone photograph. Sometimes lions seem to kill non-food animals just for the hell of it - because they can!

    Isn't it just like a cat to kill because they can. I didn't think lions usually ate hyena - it's probably not very tasty.

    since the dates are different, I guess it was just a popular spot for lions and hyenas. Other great ones: ASG00181p7

    Lions don't usually eat Hyena or other big cats if they kill them.
