A lion that killed three people in north-western Mozambique has been killed.
The big cat began attacking people in Mavago district, which is within a nature reserve in Niassa Province, over the last week.
His victims included a father and his 10-year-old daughter, attacked in the village of Iringa, and a young child who was attacked in a separate incident in the town of Nkalapa.
A vet working for Niassa Special Reserve said the attacks happened at a time when maize cobs had matured – attracting wild pigs to the farmers’ field.
The lions follow the pigs – and in this case led to the attacks on people near the fields.
