The verb "to take" is confusing on this page. Once it used to mean "capture" which is common understanding I think.

But it is also written "a lion can move more squares after taking the `hurdle'". I believe that the lion is never capturing the hurdle. So, "after hopping the hurdle" would be more correct, except if I have misunderstood that move.
