UWA deplores killing of a Lion in Queen Elizabeth National Park

Uganda Wildlife Authority has learnt with dismay the merciless killing of an adult lioness by a section of Kazinga village residents   neighboring Queen Elizabeth National Park in south western Uganda on Thursday.  
While we sympathize with the community over the loss of their goats  killed by the straying lioness, the act of spearing the lion to death was uncalled for, since there are known established  channels of addressing the problem like alerting the national park authorities to drive the lioness back to the park.

 

Lions, particularly the climbing ones   in Ishasha sector are one of the main attractions for tourists to Queen Elizabeth National park .It is the responsibility of the Uganda Wildlife Authority in partnership with the communities neighboring the protected areas to jealously conserve this treasure for mutual benefit and the posterity to enjoy.
The park management has retrieved the carcass of the lioness for burial while necessary arrangements will be made to compensate those who lost their goats .The management of UWA implores the affected front line communities to maintain the harmonious relationship they have enjoyed with the protected area management.
