A few weeks ago I checked out some online previews of BBC's new, eight-part series "Human Planet." In the same vein as Discovery's "Planet Earth," "Human Planet" is the type of TV show perfect for watching baked out of your mind on a random Wednesday night when there's nothing else going on. I received quite the YouTube mind-f*ck by a clip of Kazakh hunters using a golden eagle to hunt and kill a fox from the top of a mountain ridge. It's a pretty unbelievable feat. Here's another awesome clip from "Human Planet": Three Kenyan hunters show a 15-deep pride of feasting lions who runs the show in the Serengeti bush. Total boss status. These dudes have glacier water running through their veins, walking right up to a pack of big cats that could easily rip their throats out. Ballsy. And extremely badass. Check out the two clips below.
In case you missed it, here's the video of the guy hunting with a golden eagle.
