JOHANNESBURG (AP) — A provincial conservation agency in South Africa says a lion killed an employee at a wildlife park.

The Ezemvelo agency says the attack happened in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi (shoo-SHOO-weh eem-foh-LOH-zee) park in KwaZulu-Natal province on Monday.

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

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.
