Heh heh… “Following the revelation that The Walt Disney Company had fabricated footage of a mass suicide of lemmings in its film White Wilderness, CBC journalist Bob McKeown challenged Perkins in an interview as to whether he had ever done something of that sort.

Hate to break it to the producer of that montage, those weren’t lions in the video.  They were cougars (pumas) or the often misnamed mountain lion.  From Wikipedia:  “mountain lion is technically incorrect, as its range is not limited to mountain regions, nor can it roar like a true lion, the latter being of the genus Panthera”
