    A tour guide died after being mauled by a lion in the same park in Zimbabwe where Cecil, a well-known lion, was killed by an American dentist.

    Camp Hwange Zimbabwe confirmed on its Facebook page on Monday the death of Quinn Swales, saying that Mr. Swales, 40, had been attacked by a male lion while leading a group on a walking safari.

    “We can confirm that Quinn did everything he could to successfully protect his guests and ensure their safety, and that no guests were injured in the incident,” the post read. “Unfortunately, Quinn passed away this morning as result of the injuries sustained at the scene.”

    The Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority said in a statement that Mr. Swales said the attack occurred after he tracked a pride of lions that consisted of two females, two cubs and two males. A collared lion, named Nxaha, jumped at Mr. Swales, and “all efforts to save Quinn were in vain,” the ministry said.

    can you imagine the adrenaline rush just before a lion or shark kills you? i don't want to know.

    i thought a couple Rottweilers were going to eat me the other day and almost had a heart attack.
