SANParks: Search for escaped KNP lions in very capable hands
The SANParks says it’s working closely together with the Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency to find four missing lions.
The lions escaped from the Kruger National Park over the weekend and they were spotted on Sunday night.
Sanparks’ Markus Hofmeyr Says: “Once they leave the Kruger National Park we must cooperate closely with the provincial agencies and this case it’s the Mpumalanga Parks and Tourism Agency. We have extremely trained staff handling the situation right now. The situation is in fact in very capable hands.”
Hofmeyr says that the cats are not an immediate threat to humans or livestock.
“At this stage, there’s been no report of any livestock killed. There has been no threat to any humans. In fact, they're in fairly rugged terrain where there aren’t any people.”
