An American woman who was mauled to death by a lioness in a South Africa game preserve was “brilliant, kind, adventurous and high-spirited”, her family says. The family said in a Facebook posting, "Katherine Chappell’s “energy and passion could not be contained by mere continents or oceans." The 29-year-old Chappell grew up in the New York suburbs and a memorial service is scheduled for Saturday in Rye, New York. Chappell’s mother, Mary Chappell of Rye, told the Journal News that her daughter went to South Africa to work for two weeks as a volunteer at a different preserve, one dedicated to saving rhinoceroses and elephants. Her mother added that Katherine was hoping to make a movie about animal poaching.
