Midget army v. a single lion.

No cameras, according to the article.

When I went to see the bullfighting in Mexico, I thought it was outrageous that the game was so stacked in favor of humans. No such squeamishness so in Cambodia.

I have a feeling that the Romans set up just such a battle in their arenas. I know for a fact that they had things like:

Lion VS Tiger
Lion VS Armed Human
Lion VS Three Unarmed Humans
Giraffe VS Three Unarmed Humans

..and so on. It doesn't take a modern mind to 'toss' midgets into the equation.

IT all depends on how self-sacrificing the little guys are. If they ALL go to choke the lion's neck, I think as little as 10 could do it.
