It has since been reported that the dangerous animal is using the Lengwe Game Reserve as its attack Launchpad which is becoming difficult for the rangers to kill the beast.

Director of Parks and Wildlife Brighton Kunchedwa said, “It is believed this lion is from Mozambique and is hiding in Lengwe Game Reserve. It has immunity in the game reserve. We cannot shoot it”.
