Lion Kills Heron In Front Of Visitors At Amsterdam Zoo (Video)

A lion killed a heron at a zoo in the Netherlands, which was captured on film by zoo-goers.

A visiting family was taping a pride of lions lazing in the sun inside their cage, when suddenly a heron landed in the enclosure. With her hunting instinct stirred, a lioness then sneaked up on the blue heron and pounced majestically, grabbing the hapless bird out of the air before clamping it in her jaws.

The incident took place a year ago at the Artis Royal Zoo in Amsterdam but it made buzz online just recently after the amateur footage was reuploaded to Youtube.

Check out the said video of the lion killing the heron below:
