Lion Turns Car into Chew Toy

Occurred on July 4, 2018 / Harrismith, South Africa

Info from Licensor: "This lioness is called Lexi and she is 3yr old. She loves car tyres and usually chases cars because of it. She is a real character and the alpha female of her pride. She even bullies the male of this pride Braveheart and he is scared of her!!
She knows us well and us her, she is definitely The Boss!
We drove into her camp to do some veterinary work on one of her pride members and she came over to greet us. This is nice we thought, but it was actually mainly a clever feline ploy to get near enough to the Toyota Land Cruiser to be able to play with the tyre. Which she did...with disastrous consequences for the tyre haha. She used her super strong claws and teeth to destroy it! She managed to do another back tyre also, and then even a spare on the back of the cruiser. Three tyres she cost us that day ;) A very expensive veterinary treatment in the end!"
