Six lions have been found poisoned in the north of Pretoria – some with their heads and paws cut off.

Details were still sketchy on Saturday morning but Hi-Risk Unit security’s team and conservation units were on the scene.

“The incident occurred somewhere between Friday night and Saturday morning,” said Arthur Crew of Hi-Risk Unit security service.

Police were also dispatched to the scene.

Crew said that some of the lions had their paws and heads removed.


He could not elaborate further as the investigation is still ongoing.

A reward of up to R250 000 has been offered for any information that may lead to the arrest of the suspects. Hi-Risk Unit was in the process of gathering the information.
