Is This Video of a Lion Attacking Proud Trophy Hunters Real?
The authenticity of the chilling footage has been called into question by the YouTube community.
A video of a lion attacking two hunters standing over a dead King of the Jungle has many questioning its authenticity.
"You can tell it's CGI due to the crappy shadows," one internet sleuth said.
Another said: “When the woman gets behind the lion, the contrast between them is off, as if it's on a green screen."
As the man goes to adjust his camera, a lion approaches the unsuspecting hunters, who both scramble out of the camera frame.
In the chaos, you hear a rifle fire off camera and screams.
The lion wanders back into frame, unhurt and the two hunters are nowhere to be seen.
Former NYPD video analyst Conor McCourt had a look at the video and told Inside Edition: “I think it is a fake."
He added: “In the shadows we are having issues with the lion in the foreground and the dead lion on the ground, there are issues whether they are from the same camera.”
