Zimbabwe shoots ‘Tsavo’ bachelor lion

One of two ‘bachelor’ lions that killed nine cattle and a donkey in Zimbabwe has been killed.

The animal was shot at Hurungwe West during a joint operation by rangers from Hurungwe Rural

District Council (HRDC) and Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority officials.


The famous ‘maneaters of Tsavo’ in Kenya, now on display in Chicago’s Field Museum, were two bachelor lions

School children were going home from school early in fear of the cats.

The team is still searching for the remaining rogue lion.
