Kariba Lions Update: Ranger Shot

A ranger has been shot during the hunt for the lions that have terrorised residents of the resort town of Kariba.

This was after a lion attacked Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Authority rangers on the hunt for the animals which have claimed two people so far. He was shot in the foot and thigh.

Indications are that he was shot by a fellow ranger. Well, better that than be dragged away by the lion right?

The authority has confirmed the incident which took place on Tuesday.

The lions have claimed a 77 year-old man Jazel Meki Musinjeni and in a separate incident a woman, Sharon Mahwere, 43.

The authority is currently warning people to be weary of the lions which are still at large.
