It is unique in the animal kingdom that lions will kill something and not eat it. Lions kill hyenas because they don't like them. There is a scene in this documentary where a male lion, on behalf of the ladies, chases down a hyena that got too big for its britches. The music, sound effects, and slow motion photography make for a sublime experience. One of the best Lion kill scenes ever filmed!
