Poaching link suspected as lions speared to death in Tanzania
Tanzania has banned the importation of lion trophies into its borders after an angry mob reportedly caught and killed the animals.
After a seven-week hunt, the hunters have identified a male lion who had killed and eaten at least three smaller male lions, apparently in the area in which they were taking part.

Police have arrested four me바카라사이트n in connection with the incident and have announced that a man suspected of running the killing operations will be taken into custody. The killing of the lions has been dubbed the worst in the country’s history as poachers try to cash in on their success.
The hunt ended after four hours on Saturday when all the carcasses were found at the end of a long river bed.
Police said that the animals were still eating and it is not known how they died, but that the hunters said they shot and killed at least three small male lions.
The poachers allegedly bought the killed animals in a small town called Daza in the Tanga National Park.

Police Chief Zusman Daudu said that they did not expect the lion hunt to end without charge우리카지노s being brought for the five suspects, but said that they might be tried.
The hunting, he said, was one of the most intensive in the country.
In addition to poaching and killing, the area is also famous for its lion population. According to the National Geographic Society, lions and other large carnivorous mammals have been sighted for the first time in the capital, Addis Ababa.
The incident is just the latest in a string of large-scale poachers and trophy hunters, usually targeting African and Asian trophies for their ivory sales.
A Zimbabwean poacher killed 13 lions when he killed them in one day in April.
In January, a team of police from Mozambique had to escape from a poaching team in the same area.
