It has been reported that an American tourist has been tragically killed at a lion park in Johannesburg.
The US Embassy released a brief statement saying they have received reports of an “tragic incident” involving an American woman at the private park. The embassy say that they currently have no information, but they will conduct a full investigation into the reports to “provide any assistance possible”. The news comes after South African news outlet EWN, received reports from park officials saying a female tourist tragically died in a lion attack.
The well known Lion Park is a popular tourist destination. The park apparently allows visitors to drive in their own vehicles through large enclosures where lions roam freely.
