So if you're somewhere in the parts of Africa where lions roam,

pay attention to the phase of the moon:
A lion is most likely to eat you just after a full moon, research has shown.
...
The discovery, from an African study of 500 lion attacks, could explain the full moon's place in folklore as a harbinger of evil or disaster, and its association with werewolves and vampires.

Scientists studied records of nearly 500 lion attacks on Tanzanian villagers between 1988 and 2009.
It doesn't mention of maned cats of other nationality share this timing.

By the way, that's 'nearly 500' attacks in one country over that period; any guesses of the actual total across Africa?

Aside from a troll who came by for a while, the most upset comments I've had over the years of this blog was when I wrote about the bad table manners of Elsa the lion & Family; I wonder if taking note of this'll upset the bunnyhuggers again?
