Kruger National Park Lion Kill - Lions hunt either alone or in prides. In collaborative hunts, it is usually the lioness who initiates the kill.
Lions stalk their prey and when close enough, attempt a short charge, either pouncing on their target or bowling it over.
Once the lion has its jaws clamped around its victim’s throat death is swift, either by suffocation or a broken neck. The stomach is usually the easiest point of entry into the carcass, and this is the route most often taken by lions.
