Art Bragg claimed that, while on an African safari hunting a vicious lion, he slipped and broke his foot. Not to be put off, he managed to continue on long enough to track the lion and kill it. Then he said that while he was at the North Pole during the dead of winter, he caught a terrible cold, but was still able to track and kill a polar bear.
