lionThe African chieftain was so merciful that, when he ascended to power, he forbade the killing of all animals. Not long thereafter, the lion and cheetah population began to get out of hand, and, starving in the wilds, they began feeding on humans.

Before long, even the antelope and zebra were so plentiful that they began nibbling on natives. The terrified populace petitioned their leader to rescind his edict, but he refused: thus, they had no choice but to overthrow the chief.

Not only was the revolt successful, it went down in history as the first time in the memory of mankind that a reign was called on account of game.
