Craig Packer: Lions Now So Endangered Fencing May Be Only Solution

Posted by

Craig Packer is the best lion man in the world, from all that I’ve read and seen, and I’ve seen a lot on trips into the mud-hut regions of Tanzania tracking man-eaters and tracing the bleeding edge of animal-human conflict in the Selous. 

Packer has spent nearly 40 years studying the big cats, and he’s embraced everything from working with big game hunters to flash-bang grenades to try to stop the inevitable onslaught of civilization.  

It’s still not working. And when Packer — the least alarmist conservationist I know — blows a whistle, it’s worth noting.
