- Residents of South Africa called the incident "justice for the lion Cecil ' : Last week, a group of five illegal hunters near the Kruger park attacked by a lion. One of the hunters was torn, the rest managed to climb a tree or flee.
Also, two hunting dogs were seized by the animal. This was reported by the Express.
Local residents do not pity the dead hunter Matome Mahlale (24). They see it as justice for the lion Cecil, who was slain in July by an American hunter in Zimbabwe in an area where hunting is prohibited. The American, dentist Walter Palmer, was ultimately not prosecuted for his crime.
