Map: Where Exactly Lions Are Being Released in the Hamptons

Many have inquired about where lions are being released in the Hamptons today by South African billionaire and Bridgehampton homeowner Hans Van der Klerk.

Van der Klerk flew the 26 lions in from his native South Africa earlier this month intent on letting them hunt in the Hamptons for a week to cull the overpopulation of deer, which have become a nuisance due to the Lyme disease they spread, plus their eating of crops and getting hit by cars.

We created this map of the lion drop-off locations. The lions will be picked up in a week, once the deer population has been slaughtered. Click the top right corner of the map for full-screen view.
