The March death in the U.S. Lots of parallels. Click to access YouTube video.


As I said in my March post when we had the tragic death here, I am not an out-and-out expert but I do know some about tigers, lions and leopards and have a fair amount of experience in animal behavior having had over ten dogs.

My druthers tell me that there seems to be a hormonal connection here which ‘confuses’ the cats. I don’t have to get graphic here but think about it. There are certain smells that are visceral and a cat can’t be blamed for getting ‘confused’.

I really think game ‘preserves’ like this really should institute a rigorous policy when it comes to young ladies and large cats. There should be clearly defined rules that say that young ladies can’t enter an enclosure with big cats under certain circumstances. That is common sense and if anybody thinks otherwise, I would have to say that they are being stupid.

Kind of funny, but I think Hindu temples used to have rules akin to this that precluded women from entering certain parts of the temple if they were …

The Hindus are ‘funny’ about this. They consider it ‘unclean’! Grand scale firewalking is very much a part of Hindu lore. [I thought I have talked about firewalking before, but it appears not.] From the little that I know about firewalking (and I had an uncle, yes my doctor uncle, who walked the fire three times in the early 1960s), one of the factors that would bar you from walking the fire was ‘contact’ with an ‘unclean’ women in the three days prior to the walk. I also think that under special circumstances they could would do a purification ritual to cleanse the person so that they could still walk the fire. My point here is that having a ‘no go’ period would not be unreasonable within the overall context of world cultures.

Here is a YouTube video of firewalking. Not from Sri Lanka. This is a pretty SMALL pit and affair! Click to access. Good quality video.

This is about the most famous firewalking ceremony in Sri Lanka. This is where my uncle walked. Click to read. Best I could find for now. Kind of busy. I will, one day, talk more about firewalking. This is the one thing, I confess, that I cannot truly explain, given that I have seen it first hand, but never at Kataragamma. Thousands would attend. Huge crush. I was little. I didn't like the crush.

    Your speculation is ridiculous. Dianna Hanson accidentally left a guillotine door open and that is how the lion made contact with her. Most accidents that occur in zoos are caused by human error, not menstruation.
