However, an analysis of the Tsavo attacks showed that the lions were primarily hunting humans only during the dry season when herd animals were scarce. During the rainy season when the herds returned, the lion attacks slacked off, indicating that they were in fact merely targeting the humans opportunistically.

Hence why it spent the winter eating the only "resource" available - people.
