20 lions and tigers found dead in a freezer in S. Africa

Twenty lions and tigers have been found dead in a freezer in a horrific surprise inspection at a ‘hunting’ farm.

A harrowing video shows two fatally ill lion cubs locked inside a metal crate on Pienika Farm in South Africa.

The young cats were found to be suffering from neurological conditions and had to be euthanized at the scene, according to IOL.

Spurred to investigate further, 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.
