East Africa’s Maasai tribe is notorious for its rite of passage. The ritual involves hunting a lion using only spears. Traditionally, this was a one boy show. The amount of lions available had started to dwindle, so they changed the rules. Hunting is now done by boys all similar in age. Killing injured lions are deal-breakers; the boys have to track a healthy, fully-grown lion for days and confront it using spears. This sounds like a modern day Braveheart with ferocious lions instead. I wouldn’t suggest trying to mimic this at your local zoo with your plastic Spartan spear you used for your Halloween costume.
