SANParks announces today an unfortunate incident where a hyena entered the camp this morning at about 04:30 at Crocodile Bridge and attacked a visitor who was sleeping in one of the tents at the camping site.
The visitor is a 15-year-old boy who was camping with his parents. He was immediately rushed to the Medi Clinic in Nelspruit after receiving first aid service by a nurse who was also in the camp.
The Rangers came to the camp to look for the hyena but could not find her. They however, found a hole under the parameter fence where the animal could have came in. SANParks sincerely regrets the incident and sympathize with the family. We will keep the public informed of the development regarding this matter.
