Lion kills man at Accra Zoo

A middle-aged man has died after he was attacked by a lion at the Accra Zoo today, Sunday, August 28, 2022.

Officials of the Zoo on a routine patrol noticed the deceased (an intruder) had jumped the security fences and entered the lions’ enclosure of the Zoo. The motive of the intruder is yet to be determined.

The deceased was attacked and injured by one of the lions, within the inner fencing of the enclosure.

The body has been conveyed to the morgue.

Accra Zoo authorities successfully coaxed the lions into a secure hold and invited the Achimota Police to convey the body and commence investigations.

A statement issued by the Forestry Commission confirmed that the lion, the lioness, and the two (2) cubs remain secured in their enclosure at the Accra Zoo.

“Forestry Commission wishes to assure the general public that no lion has escaped from the Accra Zoo. The Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources and the Chief Executive of the Forestry Commission Hon. Benito Owusu Bio and John Allotey respectively, have visited the Zoo this afternoon to ensure all facilities remain secure.”
