WALKING SAFARI GUIDE: Killed by Collared Lion in the Same Park that was Home to #CecilTheLion

Screen Shot 2015-08-25 at 9.32.32 AMNot exactly a tame or innocent lion. I would never go on a safari without a gun and extra ammo readily at hand.

A lion charged and killed a safari guide who was leading a group of tourists in the same national park in Zimbabwe that was the home of Cecil the lion who was killed by a bow hunter in July.

Police spokeswoman Charity Charamba said Tuesday that Quinn Swales was in Hwange National Park when he spotted six lions on Monday.

“One of the lions had cubs and they became hostile. Mr. Swales at first manage to scare the lions away but then the male lion later made a U-turn and attacked him,” Charamba told The Associated Press. None of the tourists was harmed, she said.
