This lioness was caught in a snare, although park officials and well informed sources tell me that she has been treated by a vet and the injury apparently looks worse than it is and that she seems to be healing 💚

If they burnt them, means that they were not out for lions. Strange though that they both ended up in snares :-? Some more info would be enlightening.

Sanparks must do something serious in order to stop people putting out snares :evil:

I think the predators are snared by accident, as these snares are for small game meat. That area has been heavily burned over the last few weeks? -O-

Of course they are snared by accident, but isn't that bad enough? Even if the the snare is put there for an impala, there is no excuse for putting out a snare. It might catch anything :evil:

That's always been the problem with snares...they are indiscriminate! :evil:
