i was wondering the same thing, myself.  It seems inhumane to let her suffer before she dies.

Does anyone know if they were allowed to tranquilize that poor lioness or did they just let her die while suffering? I mean, I know that they're not supposed to interfere, just film it, but if it was obvious that she was going to die, then surely they would be allowed to ease her misery.
