LEAK

COUNTRY/REGION: Mozambique/South Africa
TOPIC: Illegal trophy hunting of lions and leopards

Corruption and bribery still allow illegal use of baits to lure lions and leopards from the Kruger National Park into Mozambique.
Scouts pull decomposing meat along the border in the Kruger and pull it back into Mozambique, then pull the meat up to a bait station,
either a carcass tied up in a tree for leopards or meat dangling on a rope for lions.
The clients/hunters sit in a hide overlooking the bait.

STATUS: Ongoing
Currently gathering more information. A few individuals identified.
