The Ultimate Stalkers - They may look like enormous versions of
domestic pets but lions and tigers of the world are no "pussy cats".
They are ruthless and successful carnivores of the highest order and
they kill to eat. Rob Bredl takes you to see how lions and cheetahs
stalk African plains. Then even in the darkest moments of survival
you will appreciate the agility of the Californian cougar as it
pounces from above.
There are times when big cats include human flesh on their menu and
survivors of attacks give their remarkable stories. We look back at
the extraordinary and famous attacks at Tsavo in Kenya where 140
workers lost their lives to two marauding male lions…an event which
inspired the movie “Ghost In The Darkness”. We visit the Chicago
Field Museum where answers are sought staring into the glassy eyes
of the responsible killers now preserved forever in infamy. Rob
speaks with global experts to examine the behaviour of these perfect
predators as they hunt, kill and survive.
