Photo: Lions, Elephants Speared Near Kenya Wildlife Park



At least three lions, including this one missing much of its skin and teeth, have been killed on the fringes of Kenya's Amboseli National Park in recent weeks.

Scientists also reported that 14 elephants were speared nearby, four fatally—the latest example of increasingly tense competition between people and wildlife in one of the world's most popular tourist destinations.
