South African wildlife rangers are searching for four male lions that escaped from a national park.
The lions escaped from Kruger National Park on Sunday night and were last seen in the village of Matsulu
“KNP Rangers and their counterparts at the Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency (MTPA) are in the area searching for the lions and we will give details as soon as they have appraised us,” KNP spokesperson William Mabasa said in the statement.
“SANParks would like to reiterate that residents should be extra vigilant and report any sightings of these dangerous predators to the authorities.”
The latest escape comes after five lions broke out of the same park in May. Four of them were caught but the fifth is still unaccounted for.
