Why did Simba have to die?


Guest : Linda Park| Director at Voice 4 Lions

Local conservation body CapeNature has confirmed that it euthanised the lion cub
which was rescued from a home in Athlone earlier this year.
'Simba' the lion cub made headlines back in August when he was found in the suburb on
the Cape Flats following a police operation.
At the time, it was reported that the cub had been taken to safety.
It has now emerged that the animal was euthanised the same day that it was handed
over to CapeNature in August.
CapeNature spokesperson, Loren Pavitt, says the organisation was faced with the
"hardest decision to make in conservation".
