A couple of months ago, photographer Barbara Jensen Vorster was at the Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana when her DSLR was stolen by a… cat burglar.
Vorster believes that although usually a very relaxed animal, the lionesses were being protective of their small cubs.
"They dragged it through the dirt, chewed on the lens hood and then fortunately, like most kids, soon grew tired with their new toy."

"There are two huge teeth marks on the rubber focus rings of the lens and small teeth marks on the plastic lens hood, both of which I decided not to replace."
