How Zimbabwe Man Survived ‘Face To Face’ Lion attack

A Zimbabwean state-run newspaper reports a farmer is recovering after surviving a lion attack in the remote northwest of the country.
The Chronicle reported Saturday that a lioness pounced on farmer Joel Ngwenya near the Hwange nature preserve, goring his arms and upper body and leaving him unconscious. Lions had been preying on livestock in the district.
“The lioness looked straight into my eyes, staring and roaring,” Ngwenya told the paper from a hospital.
It pinned him down with its claws and continued staring at him “face to face,” he said. The lioness briefly moved away toward a lion cub then turned back on him.
He regained consciousness, realizing “it just left me lying down and went away,” the paper further quoted him as saying.

    I also survived an attack.In this case it was fat lady.She accused of staring at her boobs.It was either she takes me to the police or I pay her.I refused to be bullied because of what my eyes did.Anyway, she threw a shoe at me and called me names.I left the pub laughing at the top of my voice.
