You might recall that last week, I reviewed a video by the brand-new media company PaintedDog TV. I gave that video, called “Safari with Brent: Cheetahs of Leadwood,” the highest rating I’d ever given a wildlife film.
Now, Brent Leo-Smith and Wium Dornbrack have just released their fourth “Safari with Brent” video, “Re-collaring a Male Lion,” and it’s incredible.
“Re-collaring a Male Lion” is a behind-the-scenes look at conservation in Africa. It tells the story of a young, male lion who’d outgrown the tracking collar that was placed on him to help scientists and wildlife managers study his movements. Thus, the lion had to be tranquilized so that managers could give him a bigger collar.
PaintedDog TV were there for the whole ordeal, and it was intense. Be sure to watch the video below, and take a few minutes to learn about PaintedDog TV!
On another note, I’m thinking of creating a “Media Monday” feature on this blog, where I share wildlife-related media – mostly videos – on as many Mondays as I can manage. Thoughts?
