Yeah i read it too Guan Yan. but Sangozhi not mention about tiger. Wild beast can be anything (a boar maybe)


I swatted a fly out of the air with my bare hands once! :lol:

I think the whole tiger killing could be just an exaggeration of something more down to earth, like killing one during a hunt. They hunt with bows so he could have shot a tiger and finished it off with his bare hands.

This sounds hardcore, but was ever accounted how OLD those tigers were.Probably he killed only the cubs or very old animals which weren´t able to defend themselves. Sounds odd, I know, but it is an idea...
Cao Cao was one of the most friendly persons of his time. He was simply ... missunderstood.

there is a possible that was happening, Gongsun :lol: :lol: i also think like that either is a wounder wild beast, baby wild beast, or else (wild beast means probably not tiger...can be boar, lizard. etc)

It says beasts of pray so I assume big tigers and a cub is not considered a beast it is considered a cub :D He was also noted for extraordiary strength.
