A zookeeper at a Johannesburg zoo was killed by a lion named Nyanga. The zookeeper went inside the lion’s enclosure to carry out his usual tasks, when the lion appeared in what was supposed to be a safe section of the enclosure. The man sustained severe neck injuries caused by Nyanga’s bite, which caused the man’s death. Nyanga was sent to a sanctuary after the incident.
