“After confining it for 20 years? Was it the best option?” KARA's Seung Yeon shows anger about a lion being killed after escaping a private ranch

Singer and actress Han Seung Yeon was angered at the news of a lioness escaping from a private ranch and later being killed.

On August 14, a lioness that had been held captive for 20 years on a private ranch in Goryeong County, Gyeongsangbuk-do, managed to break free. She took refuge in a nearby forest, only 30 meters from her cage, where she remained peaceful during her brief taste of freedom. Despite her known docility and the fact that she was born and raised in captivity, a team of 160 individuals tracked her down within an hour. Tragically, due to concerns about potential risks to humans, the lioness was shot and killed.

Upon reading this article, Han Seung Yeon shows anger, saying, “After confining it for 20 years? Was it the best option?”

Han Seung Yeon, who has always shown exceptional affection for animals by volunteering at animal shelters, expressed a feeling of anger and sorrow at the unfortunate death of the lioness, which only wanted to seek freedom.

The escaped lioness, which was illegally raised at the ranch, was reported to be around 20 years old.

They're always so fast with killing these animals. Wild animal or not, tranquilizer darts exists. There was no need to kill it

I take it they don't know about tranquiliser guns in South Korea. 160 people to track down one lost lion? Blimey, did they all think they were on safari or something?


Poor lioness, docile and quiet, probably hand raised, but shot for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The ultimate betrayal.
