Tsavo Man-Eaters
The Tsavo Man-Eaters were a pair of notorious man-eating lions responsible for the deaths of a number of construction workers on the Kenya-Uganda Railway from March through December 1898. In March 1898 the British started building a railway bridge over the Tsavo River in Kenya. The project was led by Lt. Col. John Henry Patterson. During the next nine months of construction, two maneless male Tsavo lions stalked the campsite, dragging Indian workers from their tents at night and devouring them. The exact number of people killed by the lions is unclear. Patterson gave several figures, overall claiming that there were 135 victims. Based on bone samples is now assume that´s it is only about 35 victi.
