It is a sad day for Lion Guardian Solonka’s community. Over 10 shoats (sheep and goats) were killed in his area of work with another 10 missing. Solonka was called in to help find the animals, and discovered carcasses all over the area. He found tracks from lions, hyenas and cheetahs around them.
In cases like this where different carnivores were involved it sometimes doesn’t matter which carnivore made the kill – the lions will be blamed and hunted in revenge. We hope the community will follow the advice of Solonka and resist taking out their anger on the lions after he worked so hard to help find the rest of the herd that had gone missing.
Solonka was exhausted after walking for over 24 hours searching for the lost animals. He can’t understand how the herder lost so many during the day. Â
