Park rangers shot five lions in South Africa's Kruger National Park after a series of attacks on illegal immigrants from Mozambique, 11 of whom died in the nine months up to August.
Human remains were found in the stomachs of the lions, which were shot when a Mozambican was killed and eaten on 11 August at a waterhole.
The man was reported to be one of a group of 14 illegal immigrants who had been repatriated the day before. Five decided to return to South Africa that night, when they were attacked. The surviving four, who took refuge in a tree, were again sent back to Mozambique. Over 2,000 illegal immigrants have been repatriated this year.
Immigrants cross the park on foot and the Kruger unit of the National Defence Force arrested 13,479 between January 1993 and January 1997. It is believed that many more have been killed by lions than those recorded.

I' Personally I do not believe animals should be subjected from day 1 to torture. It's just not fair, people should hunt their food like in the old days, instead of eating animals that are diseased, living in their feces and injected with growth hormones and who the hell knows what.

I love meat. Love it. I'm eating some meat right now. Sausagified pig with a hint of cow.
I eat meat for the same reason cannibals do. I digest the flesh of animals in order to absorb their strengths, their soul-force.
I treasure the slow, thoughtful ruminations of cow. The inexorable "root-hog or die" attitude of pig. The swift reflexes of pheasant, dove, and quail. The plucky cocksureness of chicken. The timeless, searching sensitivity of lobster and calamari.
Sometimes, when no one's looking. I eat it raw. I stuff handfuls of it down my throat at parties, devouring whole "cheese-sausage ball" trays of ours d'ouvres while others are distracted.
Sometimes, I'll wake up in a strange location, my arms still wrapped around a styrofoam slab or some cling-wrap. I wander home in the pre-dawn glow of empty streets, hiding my terrible secret from the eyes of men.
Please! Stop me, before I grill again!

So what do you say to someone like this guy: www.brendanbrazier.com...
Do you think that some people that go vegetarian are just eliminating the meat and not replacing it with anything.
Maybe vegetarianism forces you to become more creative, and involved in what your cooking and intaking, and is not simply something you can do or comment on uneducated.
