    docile? no instinct to escape?
    I think you mean docile to humans, they clearly know to run.
    they just don't know how to kick, or how to stay away
    had they not bred out the instinct involving distance and predators, this killing spree wouldn't happen

    The film crew just happened to be all perfectly set up around the donkeys at the exact time the lions come for the very first time. With that kind of "instinct" or "luck" maybe the film crew should start investigating serial killers, kidnappers or rapists, I'm sure after they set up cameras around e.g. a public park they'll just so happen to film someone doing something evil and hand the evidence over to the police because they're so fortunate. Oh wait, they paid for the donkeys to be lead to where the lions were baited to and filmed the trap as an experiment to see how many the lions would kill and how the donkeys would react. Makes for great viewing.

    And better yet, hold a conference with the local village folk who don't speak a word of English and make it seem like the crew is passionately appealing for the villagers to not slay the lions because apparently having local lions who know the area well is really valuable to the villagers, even though those lions are likely to now permanently want to hunt easy kill farm animals and maybe even some of the villagers themselves. Clearly lions make for good tour guides and will help boost tourism in the area. Or it's all bullshit and this crew had to set this all up because they're under pressure to justify all the expenses incurred in filming out there and finding things interesting enough to make it in the docuseries.
