Stalking Tanzania's Man-Eating Lions
Nature's most efficient predators are hunting down the people of southern Tanzania. These cats are cunning, hungry, and—some believe—not of this world.

A Tanzanian boy rides his bike home near sunset in the village of Mnolela. The dense forest and tall grasses make villagers vulnerable to lion attacks. They have to stay late in the evening in their fields to protect their crops from rampaging monkeys who like to eat the rice and corn. This forces the villagers to travel at sunset, the time of day when lions are out looking for prey.
