I shot a lion!

I shot this lion (with my Canon Rebel XTi). 

O, what a harrowing near death experience, with many narrow escapes!

Surely, any lesser man would have turned-tail and run,....  or been devoured by this unpredictable, savage beast. But my uncommon strength, courage, and cunning prevailed, and I got a direct shot and I beat the beast!

As for my shameless immodesty, I am merely maintaining an African tradition and proverb:

Until lions have their own “storytellers,” tales of the lion hunt will always glorify the hunter.

Did I mention that I snuck up behind him and shook salt on his tail and that sapped him of his strength, and I hog-tied him and brought him home and  trained him, and now he guards my gate???
