Uganda: Six lions found dead and dismembered in Queen Elizabeth National Park


The big cats were found with most of their body parts missing and surrounded by dead vultures on Friday evening, Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) said.

The dead birds suggest the lions may have been poisoned, according to officials, who said illegal wildlife trafficking could not be ruled out.

The UWA condemned the incident as it sought to reassure the public that the park and its wildlife were both still safe.

The agency said in a statement on Saturday: “Uganda Wildlife Authority is saddened to announce the death of six lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park.
