Lions in Isoka continue terrorising humans and livestock
Several villagers in Katyetye’s Chiefdom in Isoka District of Muchinga province are leaving in fear following continued attacks of a human being and livestock by stray Lions.

“I received fresh report of the lions killing three domestic animals in Katyetye village yesterday”, he said.
“The Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW) has Authorised people in the area who have licensed fire Arms to kill lions in Katyetye chiefdom as it takes a long time for the wildlife officers to reach the scene of attack,” the DC added.
Meanwhile a check by the Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) has revealed that paw makings of Hyenas have also been spotted in Katyetye Kazilamawe villages for the last seven days.
