A man from from Uganda is nursing his wounds after fighting and killing a lion he encountered near his home
Shocking photos show the aftermath of an intense wrestling match to the death between a man and lion in Uganda after the big cat entered his home, locals claim.
The lion killer was photographed looking worse for wear with blood seeping through his multiple bandages.
His injuries have not been reported but the graphic photo shows a dislodged eye patch and scratches all over his body which will probably last as a reminder of the brutal battle for quite some time.
The dead lion was later skinned and eaten by local villagers.
