Just saw this thread, cool.
Theres a true story about 2 lions that hunted an killed anywhere between 30 and 130 Indian railroaad workers(depending on who we believe) who were hired by a British construction company to build a Railroad Bridge over the TSavo River in Kenya in 1898.
The event of the background, the hunt and the killing of the lions was depicted in the Movie The Ghost and the Darkness
. The movie, starred Val Kilmer, as the engineer in charge of building the railroad bridge, and Michael Douglas, an American "white hunter" who was hired to do the hunting.
The movie took a lot of liberties (as do most "...based upon...." movies), but it was enjoyable . AND at the end , it reminded us that the actual skins of the two maneless male lions, had been bought , mounted and are now on display in the Field Museum in Chicago, since the late 1920.s.
