October 4, 2018

Eleven lion cubs had been poisoned in Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda.Braczkowski, a wildlife film maker working with NatGeo, states that in this case, while not directly intentional, can and will very easily happen again. They were exposed to a pesticide that unfortunately lead to their doom. The film maker states that with the growing human population, we are likely to hear more of the incidents occurring. With a population so poor, many only have the 1-2 cattle to their name as a food source, farming tool and transportation option. If lions pose a threat to their livelihood, more tragedies can be expected.

Key Takeaways:

  • Alexander Braczkowski was devastated that the lions he had been following were killed in an apparent poison attack.
  • People will probably want to poison lions to prevent them from eating their cows, their only source of livelihood in poverty-stricken Uganda.
  • Alexander has started a GoFundMe page to help Ugandans so they would not feel threatened by the lions.
