Number of lion attacks

How many lion attacks are there?

More than 1000 in 14 years in Tanzania only

It is important to know the fact that the number of lion attacks has increased significantly since 1990 in Tanzania.  Believe it or not, more than 563 Tanzanians were killed and 308 persons were injured by lions in that time.  Keep in mind the fact that the lion attacks are most common in rural areas during harvest time.  The main idea is that farmers sleep in their fields in makeshift huts to protect their crops from bush pigs when they are attacked.
