A 46-year-old man has been mauled to death by lions near Hoedspruit outside Phalaborwa on Friday evening.
Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said the man was allegedly driving a tractor which got stuck a few meters before he could reach his compound.
He said the man had decided to walk the rest of the way, and subsequently, a group of lions attacked him and killed him.
Ngoepe said the man’s body had been recovered after the lions were scared off with gunshots.
Police investigations into the matter continue.
