South Africa | NP agency faces blowback after killing 7 lions that habitually escaped Karoo NP

Cape Town - South African National Parks (SANParks) has defended its decision to put down seven lions in the Karoo National Park after the pride left the park and killed a number of sheep from a neighbouring farm.

After coming under fire this week, SANParks said in a statement on Friday afternoon that its decision to put down the seven lions deemed to be damage causing animals “was not taken in haste nor lightly”.
