    It's a shame that the lions are being forced out of their habitat, but that is happening worldwide with so many animals. Cats are nocturnal hunters--daylight attacks mean they don't have enough area to successfully hunt in at night. I love animals, and it is so hard for me to accept the demise of so many animals, of so many different species--they are running out of room rapidly.
