Every day I watch videos of Lions on the Hunt

It’s interesting to see the same basic strategies applied, & how they change based on number of lions participating

#1 strategy is always get throat control, regardless of prey size
#2 Hip control, especially for larger prey

Lions use leverage like all predators do

Trying to break a throat bite hold while being weighted down on the haunches tires out the animal fast
#3-Get the Groin

Vulnerable area and disables ability to run away

Getting attacked eaten alive asshole and genitals first...nature is indifferent to suffering
#4 Target the Weak Ones

Taking down big animals is impressive, but lions are very opportunistic and will readily take on smaller prey

Newborns and prior pregnant animals that have just given birth are always targets
