Lions Which Killed Woman Having Sex In Bush captured and Killed in Zimbabwe – Photos
Zimbabwe and the surrounding countries were awash this week after several lions caused a scare after killing a woman who was reportedly having sex with her boyfriend, and then also killing another man whose body was found nearby.
The lions were however hunted down and a number had to be killed by rangers in an operation which ended on Friday(yesterday).
Rangers confirmed that “three lionesses – 1 Mother and her 2 sub adult cubs were captured and put to sleep on Thursday night.
“Thanks and praises go out to Parks and Wildlife for taking the lead in this and to all other Departments, Authorities, Residents and Volunteers who played a part in ending the 4 nerve wrecking days,” a statement read.
The statement continued:
“As was suspected the Mother Lioness had a thick scarring around her neck from a wire snare and her back leg was lame and badly swollen.
“We cannot stress enough to all, the need to report any suspected injured Wild Animals.”
The Zimbabwean story is almost similar to one reported by the BBC in 2002 in Tanzania. In August 2002, it was reported that a man and woman were attacked by a lion when they were having sex in a bush near their Tanzanian village. The beastly cat attacked the woman but the man escaped and when he returned later with other villagers, the lion had disappeared and all that was left was the woman’s mauled remains.
