Now heres a story…
I was taking many pics of this Big Kitty cat and his Pride on the weekend.
He got up after some time and walked closer to my car, I rolled up the window as he was only a metre away. he went and sat right behind my car.
I loved this to start with and franticly started trying to get pics of the scars on his face from fighting. I was leaning out the passenger side front door eager to snap up some close ups. After some time I decided it was time to go and see what else was on offer in the Reserve that day.

I was very aware that he might not like me starting my car while he was sitting right behind it. But I eventually decided to start it as it was getting late and cold. Nervously I turned the key and hit the pedal. The huge guy jumped up and thumped his paws down on my boot, I got such A fright and began to drive off. This made him even more mad and he ran with the car, his front paws still on the boot. I went faster and eventually he gave up so I slowed down to get a pic of the kitty in his mad state. But he charged again and in true movie fashion when the stalker runs at the scared girls car…I stalled. I got it started in time as he got closer and drove off. The rest of the day I kept remembering that movie “ghosts in the darkness” where the lions kill all those peeps.
