Dallas Zoo has launched an investigation into why a male lion attacked and killed a lioness in front of hundreds of visitors.

Despite living peacefully together for years, witnesses say the male lion suddenly turned on the lioness, calmly forcing his jaws around her throat and dragging her to the ground.

Speaking to WFAA news channel, witness Jim Harvey said: “Everyone thought they were playing at first but then they could see that she was struggling.”

An autopsy on the lioness showed she had died from severe neck wounds and haemorrhaging. The lion exhibit was immediately closed following the incident, and the male removed from the enclosure.

The three lions that remained in the enclosure appeared totally unaffected by the incident, and Dallas Zoo says it would “absolutely not” be euthanising the male as the chances of an incident like this happening again are considered “very remote”.

In a statement, the zoo’s vice-president of animal operations and welfare, Lynn Kramer, said: “Johari was a remarkable animal, as are all of our lions… [she was] sweet and loving with her sisters, and often could be found grooming them”.

Mr Kramer went on to say: “This is a very rare and unfortunate occurrence. In my 35 years as a veterinarian in zoos, I've never seen this happen”. He added that, although male lions do sometimes kill other males and sometimes cubs in the wild, attacking a female is extremely rare.

The zoo plans to keep its two male lions apart - and separate from the two surviving females -until they work out what happened.

So... the lion acted like a lion? Bitch probably slept with the other lion.

    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air
