Kariba resort on high lion alert after attacks
07 Mar 2013
HARARE — Wildlife rangers in Zimbabwe say they have put the northern resort town of Kariba on full alert after rogue lions mauled to death two people near a suburb there.
The National Parks and Wildlife Authority said fliers were being handed out in the town yesterday and volunteers were using a loudspeaker to caution townspeople on the dangers of lion attacks on the shores of Lake Kariba. It said one man escaped from a lion attack on Tuesday, but the woman with him was savaged to death.
An arm and remains of a second corpse were found by rangers hunting for the lions.
The authority warned people against walking at night and using footpaths through the bush as shortcuts.
