Johannesburg Zoo Management is deciding whether or not to put down a Lioness that killed a man this week.
They will come to a decision on Friday; the 63-year-old man mauled was an employee of the zoo, which operates as a farm.
The death at the Rietkuil conservation farm in Parys, was simply believed to be of Human Error.
It is reported that Monday’s attack at farm allegedly occurred after gates at the lion’s den were left open, said a Zoo spokesperson.Ramonetha had worked for the zoo for nearly 40 years.
There is a public outcry to save the Lioness and petitions are being passed around to be signed and forwarded to the JHB ZOO against killing the Lion.Many people who are against putting the Lioness down have forwarded emails to email@example.com or sent it directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
I personally believe that the Lion was just being what it is; a predator and the putting down of this wonderful beast of Africa will in no way accomplish anything.I mean, what lesson will be learnt, do you think this is a warning to all other Lion’s out there?
