PHOTO: Zimbabwe's innovative lion guard program protects both rural communities and lions

In this photo taken Tuesday Sept. 29, 2015 a lion guard, wearing a lion-like mask, demonstrates how he scares off lions using a plastic horn during a training session at their base in Hwange, south west of Zimbabwe's capital Harare. Zimbabwe’s lion guards are brave community members selected and trained to prevent attacks on humans and cattle by big cats who stray from the unfenced Hwange park, which sprawls over 14,500 square kilometres (5,625 sq. miles) in western Zimbabwe.
