Hungry and angry, the king of the jungle assaulted a traveler and grappled with him in mortal combat. A fierce struggle lasted about five minutes. Leo was biting and scratching Gotz, while he was trying to defend myself and take refuge in the tent.
To help unfortunate researcher came to his colleague, the 46-year-old Dr. Rainer von Brandis (Rainer Von Brandis). He ran out of a nearby tent, armed only with a large branch. The scientist saw what a terrible situation turned out to be his friend, and tried to ward off a lion. Next to the tent Rainer noticed a small pile of dry elephant dung. Excited doctor started throwing in animal manure pellets. Unfortunately, it didn't help. Then he began to beat him with a branch, but the animal did not respond to the attacks, continuing to torment Gotz.
Fortunately, the commotion and shouts were heard Ranger Tomales Setloboko (Tomalets Setlabosha) and arrived to help. He threw a raging beast with a firecracker flash, which scare away hippos.
