The lion popularly know as “Shamba” that attacked its owner at a private game reserve near Thabazimbi in Limpopo over the weekend was killed during the incident.
Michael Hodge, 72, the owner of Marakele Predator Centre “bottle raised” Shamba since birth. Hodge broke his jaw and sustained injuries to his neck during the attack.
In a short video clip, Hodge can be seen walking behind the lion in a den.
The lion quickly spots him and chases him as he runs for a metal gate. The lion then drags him into nearby bushes, where he lies motionless.
An onlooker can be heard crying and screaming: “Somebody help, please! Oh my God!” Some gunshots can also be heard in the background.
Hodge and his wife are originally from Britain and opened the reserve park in 2010.
