Kenya: Masai Mara National Park Loses Three Lions to Hunters’ Traps

Oct 05, 2020

Three lions have been killed in Kenya’s Masai Mara national park. The BBC reports that the lions had become trapped in snares laid by hunters to catch bushmeat.

The Mara Predator Conservation Programme, on its Facebook page, said, “It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the tragic death of Rafiki, Lenkume [and] one of Lenkume’s sons.” It posted pictures showing the dead animals.

Four hyenas and one eland had also been killed in the snares. The BBC reports that it’s assumed that the eland must have become trapped in a snare, attracting the lions and hyenas to the site, where they also became trapped in snares.”

The authorities are now clearing the site of other traps. Kenya had only 2000 lions left in 2017, the last time they were counted. Their numbers had been diminished by poachers, and their natural habitat having shrunk.
