One Green Planet and World News Daily reported that a group of poachers were hunting elephants near the town of Harare when a pride of 20 adult Southwest African lions ambushed them. Of the group of 10 poachers, 5 were killed and three were injured. The survivors were arrested at a nearby village upon getting medical treatment.
Zimbabwe Police Commissioner-General, Augustine Chihuri, described the scene as “a horrible bloodbath” where the bones of the dead poachers were seen scattered over a few hundreds of square meters. He further announced that he hopes this incident will serve as a warning to poachers to not go harming nature’s children.
