Lioness (1997)
When I work with farmers in East Africa, they often complain about lions killing their livestock. But when the lion lay down with the lamb, were not both their lives of value? The largest African carnivore, they are outnumbered only by the spotted hyena. Lions are gregarious, territorial, and form matriarchal societies in groups numbering 3-5 animals. And yes, lions do purr!
