Hunter and Hunted: Tanzania Terror
A horrifying epidemic of man-eating lions spreads terror throughout Tanzania. Over the course of 18 months, a notorious lion nick-named 'Osama' kills and consumes 49 people. Living with lions is a necessary evil for many people in rural Africa, but this spate of killings is not normal. What could have given this lion a taste for human flesh? An autopsy reveals a possible motive. But the day after rangers shoot 'Osama,' another lion strikes. Could another man-eater be on the prowl?
