There is outrage – mostly online – at workers in Kruger National Park for shooting a lion and two cubs.
The three animals were part of a larger pride that left the park and began killing and eating livestock.
Agents from the Tourism and Parks Agency baited the lions with a carcass and shot the first three animals that they saw.
Some argue that the lions should have been tranquilized and returned to the park.
Other are saying that the park is overrun with lions and this was the park’s only option.
