The Parks & Wildlife Management Authority of Zimbabwe wishes to dispel messages about stray lions roaming in Mufakose, Kuwadzana, Kambuzuma and Highfields being circulated on social media as false. We have been inundated by telephone calls from Harare residence who are now fearing for their lives.
We wish to assure the public that there are no stray lions roaming in Harare. Over the past two days, we have been dispatching teams to the alleged areas to assess the situation. The team observed spoors of dogs and civet cats, which were mistakenly identified as lion spoors by the residents.
We also wish to inform the public that all lions being kept at Lion & Cheetah Park are safely in their fences, contrary to reports that some have escaped. We wish to advise the public to verify any reports on stray dangerous wild animals with the ZimParks Public Relations Department.
