Heartbreak as lions are poisoned in South Africa

Two lions rescued from circuses in South America and moved to South Africa have been slaughtered by poachers.

Animal Defenders International (ADI) which helped move 33 lions a year ago, including José and Liso, says it may offer a reward for data.

The lions' heads, skins, tails and feet were evacuated, inciting doubts that they were executed for custom purposes.

The wrongdoing is at present being explored by South Africa's police and hostile to poaching units.

ADI head Jan Creamer said she was sorrowful over the killings.

"José and Liso had endured a frightful existence of manhandle yet their new life in Africa had given them another rent of life," the gathering said in an announcement.

José had experienced mind harm hits to the head in the bazaar, it said.

The lions had been inhabiting the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary, inside a 5,000-hectare private homestead in the northern Limpopo region.

ADI says it has put safeguarded animals in havens in South Africa for a long time and this is the main such occurrence.
