Latest Lion Aid News
Tuesday 26th January 2016
LionAid was approached this morning with information that the first lion captures of this year started yesterday in Zimbabwe. We are told that three lions, which were taken from Hwange National Park, are already in cages awaiting shipment to China.
There are huge concerns about the number of lions left now in Zimbabwe, especially in Hwange. There are indications that there are simply not enough to form a sustainable basis and the few remaining animals may well become inclined to become aggressive towards humans.
There is also an expectation that the capture of elephant calves may resume around March.
We will update once this has been substantiated.
