CAUGH A LIO N
JkJrdea of a Transvaal Ranger Who
Was Pitched Over His Horse's Head
Only to Be Gripped in Midair by the
8avage BruteThe Dramatio Finish.
If any one is eager for adventure
hunting lions in their native jungles
will offer him abundant opportunity.
Major J. Stevenson Hamilton in the
pages of his book, "Animal Life In
Africa," gives an account of a terrible
experience that one of his fellow ran
gers of the Transvaal game reserve
had with a lion.
In August, 1903, he was returning
from a month's patrol to the Olifants
river and had arrived within two days'
march of the Sabi. He had pushed on
ahead of his natives and pack donkeys
in order to reach the nearest police
picket before nightfall However, the
distance was greater than he thought
and darkness found him still some
three miles from his destination, riding
along a path by the side of a reed
bordered stream, accompanied only by
his big dog Bill.
As be rode through the dry bed of
the creek, where the path crossed it in
one of its windings, he saw something
move out of the reeds and melt away
into the darkness ahead. A few yards
farther on the dog rushed forward,
barking, and again an indistinct form
moved away. Supposing this to be a
buck of some kind, the ranger rode on
Without taking any special notice of
the incident, but a few minutes after
ward he suddenly saw the shape again,
this time apparently approaching.
He had scarcely time to reflect that
this was an odd performance for a
reed buck when he became conscious
that it was no antelope, but a lion in
the act of crouching for a spring.
Pulling his horse sharp to the right
just as the lion rushed, he caused the
latter partially to miss his mark, but
his claws tore down the horse's quar
ters, and the frightened animal, mak
ing a terrified leap forward, shot its
rider over its right shoulder straight
into the jaws of a second lion, which
had been coming up from behind.
Horse, man and rifle all went in dif
ferent directions. The horse made off
at full speed, followed by the first lion,
which in turn was pursued by the dog.
The man never touched the ground at
all, as the lion seemed to catch him in
The first thing he realized was that
it was trotting off with him down the
path. He was held firmly by the right
shoulder, and. lying on his back, his
face was on a level with the brute's
neck, while his legs were dragging
along under its belly.
It was a desperate predicament, and
as soon as he was able to collect his
thoughts a little he began to wonder
whether he would be killed outright
or tortured first He saw no hope of
escape. The pain he describes as
acute, which is contrary to the experi
ence of Livingstone and others. How
ever, being a very cool headed man
and full of grit, he presently began to
cast about for some method of saving
The mind works quickly in such
cases, and suddenly he remembered his
sheathknife. an ordinary six inch
blade, which was carried in an open
leather case at the back of his belt.
Beaching underneath himself with bis
left hand, he discovered that the knife
had not been lost, so, pulling it out, he
bent all his energy on holding it tight
and awaited a favorable opportunity.
Fortune favors the brave, and the
ranger's chance came when the lion,
after going with him about 150 yards,
laid him down under a small tree for
the purpose either of shifting its grip
or of commencing operations upon him.
Feeling very carefully behind the left
shoulder for what he judged to be a
vital spot he struck a couple of back
handed blows with all his force, using.
of course, his left hand. It turned out
that each of these strokes reached the
For what seemed hours, but was no
doubt only a few seconds, man and
beast stood facing each other, the lat
ter silent and the former, with some
hazy idea of the power of the human
voice, shouting out every abusive word
that rose to his tongue. The tension
was relieved by the lion turning and
walking slowly away to a spot some
thirty yards distant, where, after
swaying for a moment, it fell heavily
to the ground, emitted a few groans
