As the festive season rolls in, it’s time to embrace the joy of giving and New Year’s resolutions. HUAWEI’s range of tried and tested…
The lions of the Kruger National Park are seemingly fed up with roaming the fenced expanse.
Following May 2017’s edition of feline prison break, rangers have today reported that four more male lions have escaped from the park.
“We are not completely sure about the whereabouts of the lions,” explains SANParks’ spokesperson William Mabasa “and as soon as we have concrete information we will share this”.
The lions had however been seen wandering near the Matsulu, Mpumalanga area.
Soon after the news broke around 1pm SAST, the hashtag #LionsEscape began trending on Twitter. This was also propelled by SANParks’ tweets alerting residents of the roaming cats.
4 male lions believed to have escaped from the KNP last night, 9 July 2017 were spotted at Matsulu.
