Limpopo communal farmers have killed another lioness in the Giyani area, this time near Gawula village. Farmers' spokesperson Sevha Chauke says the lion was snared and trapped in the village kraal.

Chauke says it was apparently returning to finish off the carcass of a calf which it had killed the previous night.

At least seven lions have been killed so far since a group of the predators escaped from the northern Kruger National Park in the past few months.

The lions are believed to have killed around 50 cattle in the Gawula, Mahlathi and Muyexe villages since August.
