Twenty lions and tigers have been found dead in a freezer in a “hunting” farm in South Africa.
A surprise inspection at the farm exposed a number of horrific things. A harrowing video shows two fatally ill lion cubs locked inside a metal crate on Pienika Farm in South Africa. The lions were found to be suffering from neurological conditions and had to be euthanized at the scene.
Upon further investigations, inspectors from the NSPCA discovered the lifeless bodies of 20 other lions and tigers of varying ages in a freezer. Five carcasses were removed for post-mortem examinations to determine the cause of death.
The NSPCA has said they will be laying further animal abuse charges on the farm owners.
