Yes both the tourist (killer) and the guide spoke Afrikaans. I drop my head in shame. :(

Regarding the poaching of lions, I guess the signs the rangers would see is some sort of bait left for the lions? I would think that due to lions keeping their distance from humans on foot (as explained by guides on a walk) that this would be the way to kill them in the wild? There is the added danger that a wounded lion is extremely dangerous and add in that if done at night would make it even more dangerous for the poachers, not having the sight in the dark that a lion would have.



Weltenman,

Poachers have managed to wipe out lions in West Africa, so I am sure they can manage in The Kruger Park.

Dear members,

We will be locking this topic because we already have another similar topic going resulting in a fair amount of cross-conversation.
Please feel free to continue the discussion here?
Hunting

Thanx! :)
