Six large animals were electrocuted and killed at a park in South Africa in what officials described as “a freak accident,” ABC News reported.

A storm knocked over a power line inside Kruger National Park on Friday. A live cable electrocuted and killed a giraffe and a white rhino, as well as two lions and two hyenas who were trying to feed on the carcasses.

The world-renowned park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves.
