#AceNewsReport – Aug.17: The tragedy, which took place at Hwange National Park, reportedly occurred Aug. 5 after an unnamed American had allegedly tracked down the majestic 12-year-old Mopane with the help of Dennis Nyakane, a guide for South African hunting operator Chattaronga Safaris, according to online reports. He had also allegedly enlisted the services of Dinguzulu Safaris ZTA HOP 0257, the same operator responsible for the infamous killing of Cecil the lion in 2015.
#AceDailyNews says that a beloved lion Mopane has reportedly been killed by an American Hunter in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park
“The perverse pleasure some people derive from killing iconic animals brought this noble lion’s life to a tragic end,” Kitty Block, president and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, told The Post of the incident. “Another trophy hunter spending tens of thousands of dollars on a globe-trotting, thrill-to-kill escapade shows humanity at its worst.”
The Post has attempted to contact the alleged US hunter, who is the subject of an aggressive social media watchdog campaign despite the fact that his identity has not been confirmed at this point.
As with Cecil, the coalition of big-game hunters had used bait to lure the male lion to Antoinette, a hunting concession bordering the unfenced Hwange National Park. This was reportedly the same spot where Cecil was allegedly gunned down six years ago.
It was unclear whether the lion was eventually killed with another arrow or a bullet; however, he reportedly survived for a full day following the shot before finally succumbing to his injuries. Mopane’s actual time of death is unknown.
It remains unclear if Mopane was intentionally lured to his death or if he simply happened upon the bait. However, the regal beast was apparently known to cross boundaries as his territory straddled both the park and game preserve.
