It’s a dark, dark time when cowards kill animals in the most brutal manner imaginable!!!!
The Shabeni males were a coalition of two young male lions who achieved what every male lion wants – territory and a pride. The Shabeni males were doing well until poachers ended their short reign in a barbaric way!!!! The Shabeni males were found on the Western border between Numbi gate and Phabeni gate and both males were dead…. In snares!
Not only were they snared, but the poachers set both males on fire so they could hide the evidence. A few more animals were also found including two hyenas (1 died, 1 rescued) and a leopard was seen with a snare around its neck but no one has seen it since.
