A lion which strayed from Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, has attacked two people.


 The lion clawed two people in Kigarale sub-county in Kyenjojo district, Ugnada.

According to New Vision, the victims, Elijah Akugizibwe and Francis Tugume were on Thursday afternoon tending to their garden when the lion first attacked the former before injuring the latter who had come to rescue him.



The injured, who are brothers, made an alarm that attracted residents who overpowered and killed the lion.

The brothers were rushed to Fort Portal regional referral hospital at Buhinga.  


John Paul Wasswa, a doctor at Fort Portal regional referral hospital said the victims had deep cuts on arms, legs and fore head.

“However, they are out of danger,” added Wasswa.

According to an official from wildlife authority, the lion escaped from its habitat on Monday.
“It went through Ibanda and Kamwenge districts before getting to Kyenjojo. In Kamwenge, it reportedly killed about 10 sheep and five goats in Kyenjojo,” he said.
