The Lion Hunter, Henry Wharton-Kirby, was born in 1852 in the Colony of New South Wales. His father had been an explorer and his mother a naturalist. Henry was educated at the new Grammar School in Sydney and then went to England where he completed his education at Rugby School and Oxford University. He returned to Australia as an adult and became a surveyor, working on land settlements in Queensland before returning to the northern part of New South Wales where he surveyed.

ZIMBABWE – A lion hunter in Zimbabwe killed one of the country’s largest lions, which had reportedly terrorised local people and destroyed livestock. The incident was reported to police by residents at Zengeza 4 suburb in Marondera, Mashonaland East province on Thursday. The lion, believed to have strayed from Hwange National Park in search of food and a mate, was allegedly lured out of the bush by meat left at.

The lion was shot dead after it had mauled a man to death in the village of Mabamba in Niassa province on Sunday, according to reports. Tanzania has more than half of all lions on the continent, but the predator’s numbers have fallen dramatically from an estimated 100,000 in the 1960s due to poaching and human encroachment. There are now thought to be fewer than 30,000 lions in Tanzania’s parks and reserves.
