So the Cronin twins went to darkest Africa on safari. Big game hunting was
their aim and catching lions was their dream.
'Let's build a lion trap,' said Pat. 'We'll dig a trench twelve feet deep,
cover it with a net and lure the beasts into falling into it.'
So they dug with a will and the trap was nearly complete. Mick climbed out
to dust himself down and was confronted by the fiercest lion you've ever seen.
Teeth bared, it let out a mighty roar and leapt at Mick Cronin. Mick ducked and
the beast soared over his body and into the pit.
Just as Pat screamed in terror, Mick called down the trench:
'There you are, Pat. That's number one. You skin that while I find another!'
