Question by Kelly: How many wild dogs does it take to kill an adult maned lion?
I read in the book “The Serengeti Lion” by George B. Schaller that a pack of eight wild dogs killed and ate an adult maned male lion. Would you call this an exception or something that can happen all the time?
The condition of the lion was not mentioned.

Answer by The Laughing Man
8 dogs would have a tough ass time with that. i think maybe upwards of 15-20 very large/mean dogs could do it.

although you have to consider, pit bulls were used to bring down
injured lions for the enjoyment of others in the early days

i’m guessing a full grown healthy lion is gonna put up one hell of a fight. he needs to be overwhelmed in numbers and ferocity.
