Lion escapes from ZAWA's trap in Kabompo

KARIBA ANIMAL WELFARE FUND TRUST – REPORT OF LION CHASING A MOTOR BIKE

We have had several reports of a lion chasing a motor bike and knocking the rider off, on the Chawara road. This is incorrect.

The truth, reported from a reliable source is as follows:

A worker at one of the lodges in the CHARARA area was travelling on the CHARARA dirt road when he ran out of fuel.

When he looked up, he saw lion in front and behind him. He got a lift with a vehicle and left his motor bike there.

That evening, a few Hyena took it upon themselves to eat the motor bike tyres! This was witnessed by some travelers on the road.

No one was injured in this incident.

This is a reminder that we DO live in a wildlife area and caution should be taken at all times!
