When it comes to elephants, most of us will think of the huge, herbivorous docile creatures that roam the plains of Africa and Asia. This one decided to turn those thoughts into the exact opposite. Named after the al-Qaeda leader, Osama Bin Laden, this elephant went on a bizarre rampage that lasted for a total of two years, trampling and goring 27 people, 14 of which were killed in a 6 month period.

After evading multiple capture attempts this aggressive elephant was finally caught and killed in December 2006, where it was shot by a professional hunter named Dwipen Phukan.

Also known as The Ghost and The Darkness, these man-eaters were two maneless Tsavo lion brothers, wrecking havoc among the railway construction workers of 1898 Kenya. Through March until December, they would stalk workers mainly during the night by prowling around camps, dragging their screaming victims bodies away to a nearby cave.

To no avail, they attempted to scare off the lions by building campfires and barbed fences and enough was enough when they had killed their 135th worker. Henry Patterson was hired to exterminate the beasts, and finally, on December 9, 1898, he had shot and killed one of the brothers, the other was shot 20 days later.
