Major hunt for lion on loose in KZN
A massive search has been launched for a male lion that was spotted a few kilometres outside of Dundee.
The lion, which was seen in the vicinity of the Dundee/Nquthu area of northern KwaZulu-Natal, killed a calf in the area on Sunday and attempted to kill another yesterday, reports Northern Natal Courier.
Workers on the farm also spotted large tracks on the ground. Motion-sensor cameras were set up in the area and footage captured a large male lion in the area.
The Saps, members of Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and farmers are searching for the lion in an attempt to capture it alive. It is unclear where the animal came from, or how it ended up in the area. Anyone who sees the lion is urged to contact Warrant Officer Khumalo at the Dundee Police Station. – Caxton News Service
