Tanzanians are under siege from a plague of man-eating lions. The East African republic is home to more than one quarter of the worlds lions, but until recently attacks on humans were far and few between. All of that has changed. Entire prides now consider humans fair game; over six hundred people have been killed by lions in Tanzania since 1990. This program explores how and why lion behaviour is changing to targeting human beings as a prey source, and joins a lion hunting team out to capture a man-eater who has been terrorizing the region for too long.
