Seorang wanita berusia 22 tahun mati diserang seekor singa betina ketika lawatan di sebuah tempat perlindungan haiwan liar, di Afrika Selatan.

Kawasan itu dikenali sebagai Dinokeng Game Reserve berhampiran Pretoria yang dikendalikan oleh Kevin Richardson terkenal sebagai 'pembisik singa'.

Identiti sebenar wanita itu tidak didedahkan dan disahkan mati di tempat kejadian akibat kecederaan serius selepas dipukul singa betina, menurut laporan CNN.

Richardson menyatakan bahawa dia bersama rakan sekerjanya yang berpengalaman sedang membawa tiga ekor singa berjalan-jalan di rizab tersebut.

Singa betina tersebut mengejar seekor kijang dan secara tidak sengaja bertembung dengan wanita terbabit.

Difahamkan bahawa remaja tersebut melawat Dinokeng Game Reserve bersama rakannya yang menemu bual pengurus kem sebagai tugasan, sebelum diserang berhampiran kenderaan yang dinaiki mereka.

We are deeply saddened and shocked by the death of a 22-year old woman at our tented camp in The Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve. Our condolences and heartfelt sympathies go out to her family at this very difficult time. Kevin Richardson commented: “Myself and an experienced colleague took three lions walking in the Reserve, as we do on a weekly basis, as part of their exercise and stimulation regiment. We assessed the landscape for other big 5 animals and as per procedure sent out a notification that we were walking in the reserve. One of the lionesses charged off after an Impala and must have run 2,0 to 2,5km where she encountered the 22 year old outside the car.” The young woman was not a guest at the camp, but had accompanied her friend to conduct an interview for an assignment with the camp’s manager. Before leaving the reserve, the two visitors were taking photographs outside the tented camp where the attack occurred. “I am devastated and my heart goes out to this young woman’s family.”
