Four arrested over poisoning of lions in Tanzania


Four people have been arrested in Tanzania after nine lions were poisoned in the Serengeti National Park.

Wildlife officials had discovered the carcasses over the weekend.

The Serengeti is believed to be home to around 3,000 thousand lions.

Last month in neighbouring Uganda, eleven lions were found dead from suspected poisoning at Queen Elizabeth National Park.

It’s thought people living in the area poisoned the lions after they had attacked and killed their cattle.
