PALMFONTEIN LION POISONING INCIDENT 7TH JANUARY 2022
As per the previous post on the breaking news, this particular adult Lioness was collared and therefore a research subject and as such closely monitored by Lion Rangers. It appears that she frequented the exclusive Wildlife areas around and below the Grootberg area and ventured further North to Palmfontein area where she had killed a Zebra few days before. Some-one, then laced the Zebra carcass deliberately with poison which resulted in the Lioness and a Dog being killed by the poison. It is fairly certain that more predators and scavengers, big and small had been killed by the poison indiscriminately and the case is under investigation by the Namibian Police’s Resource Protection Unit.
In October last year four Lions and two Spotted Hyenas also perished when poison was put in a Cow carcass that had evidently been killed by the Lions. Again, it will never be known how many Vultures, predators and scavengers had been killed as a result. The perpetrator was arrested in this instance and logically one would have thought that this would have deterred a repeat of this heinous act.
The Lioness killed at Palmfontein was a member of a small pride. Given the inter-dependence of younger Lions in the small prides, which are typical of Lions in very arid areas, the death of an adult can impact very negatively on younger members of the pride that are still being mentored and whose hunting skills still need to be developed through the guidance of the adult mentor. By killing/poisoning the mentor, such young Lions are then forced to target easier prey, i.e. livestock, in order to survive. Instead of solving the problem it is then exacerbated by this illegal action.
Poisoning or killing Lions, a protected species, is highly illegal and as it constitutes poaching, punishment had been drastically amended in 2018. The potential for damage caused by the poison killing other animals is incalculable!
The local farming communities know that help is at hand and the Namibia Lion Trust Lion Rangers maintain good relationships with them, hence such behavior is totally unnecessary, uncalled for and unjustifiable.
Given the value of Wildlife as a product attracting Tourism in the Conservancies on which the communities rely heavily, this can simply not be tolerated. and goes against the grain of the fundamental conservation principles these Conservancies stand for. The perpetrator should be apprehended and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
We at DeLHRA pledge N$10 000 for information that will lead to the arrest of the person or persons who committed this heinous, criminal and evil deed.
