South Africa wildlife park where a lion killed an American woman, ‘operating as … – Fox News
JOHANNESBURG – An official at the South African wildlife park where a lion killed an American woman has remained open and is “operating as usual.”
The Lion Park’s Assistant Manager Scott Simpson said that the park in Johannesburg had opened as usual on Tuesday.
An American woman was killed by a lioness on Monday when the animal attacked her through an open car window, also injuring the driver of the car who remains hospitalized.
The car’s windows were open, contrary to park rules.
Simpson said the attacking lioness would not be euthanized, but would be moved to another property owned by the park away from tourists.
The Lion Park is a popular tourist destination that allows visitors to drive in their own cars through large enclosures where lions roam freely.
