Some tragic news to report came in recently. A young boy was snatched and killed near a Safari lodge on May 7.
3-year-old Elisha Nabugyere, who was the son of a female ranger at the Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda, was killed by a leopard.
The mother, Doreen Ayera, left her son in the care of a nanny at Mweya Safari Lodge, which is an unfenced staffing headquarters, according to reports.
Wildlife authority spokesman Bashir Hangi said that at about 9 p.m. Friday, Elisha walked outside the main house with the nanny, unbeknownst to the nanny, towards the kitchen when a leopard was nearby.
Once the leopard spotted the boy, it mauled him and dragged him into a bush.
"She heard the kid scream for help, she intervened but it was too late," Hangi explained.
"The rangers immediately swung into action (and) searched for the baby but they found only a skull in the morning under a tree," Hangi said.
Hangi also disclosed that once a wild animal, particularly a leopard, has tasted human blood, it will likely strike and kill again.
"The hunt is on with the intention of capturing the leopard and removing it from the wild because once it has eaten human flesh, the temptations are high to eat another human being, it becomes dangerous," he said.
The video below shows that another leopard was captured after it had killed a 4-year-old boy:
