The Ezemvelo provincial conservation agency says the attack happened in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi park in KwaZulu-Natal province on Monday.

Agency spokesman Musa Mntambo said the 45-year-old employee was attacked after walking to a river to turn on a water pump servicing a nearby tourist lodge.

Mr Mntambo says the female lion had tuberculosis and a leg injury, preventing it from hunting wildlife. The Ezemvelo agency says park staff killed the lion.
