African Lion Who Had Legitimately Wandered from Nairobi National Park Shot Dead With Nine Bullets — 8 Comments

  1. Man made justice for animal abusers, man made justice for wildlife. They always have reasons to do this kind of sad things. Unfortunately we can see the same story on all over the world. All beautiful things about nature stay in the documentaries before 2000s. There is a Turkish song from 80s, means ‘we have grown up and the earth has polluted’

    • Thanks for visiting and commenting Banu. Humans are idiots sometimes and their relationship with wildlife, in general, is not good in my view.

  2. .. Why wasn’t he shot with a tranquilizing dart and then transported back to the park because, to be perfectly honest, there was no need for a crowd to form around him to agitate him and there was no need, it would seem to me, for the police to fire shots and exacerbate the matter?

    May I reiterate on this? I have the same questions?

    • Thanks Eva. Yes, it seems like chaos to me. A lack of management and order. Just stupid people doing stupid things and the end result is death. Crap.

  3. Have vivid memories of visiting the Nairobi National park in 1967 along with my parents and seeing a pride of Cheetahs but not a single lion.Recently have been reading news about the Nairobi lions straying out of the National park that is the only wildlife park situated within a city akin to the Sanjay Gandhi national park in Mumbai.”Mohawk’s” killing after straying from the park is not unexpected but a sad fact of human-animal conflict due to shrinkage of wild-life habitat. The Nairobi National park i had visited as a 7 year old in 1967 is definitely not the same in area or topography in 2016 although thankfully it does exist as a wild-life National Park.Hope the Kenyan authorities take better measures in fencing the Nairobi National park boundary to prevent further human-animal conflicts.Lions are already rapidly vanishing from the wild in Kenya and are now mostly found in South Africa.

  4. This makes me so angry. Petition signed. If anyone has ever watched some of the popular shows like Big Cat Diary (now in syndication in the USA), one would see that the big cats have just as much emotion and love as our domesticated cats. No reason to kill this beautiful creature. A dart gun would’ve sufficed. Seems to me the authorities should address the issue with the ignorant people whose land was stolen from the big cats.
