JOHANNESBURG - The search continues on Sunday for five lions on the loose in Fochville on Gauteng's West Rand.

It's unclear where the lions escaped from because there are no game reserves in the area.

The Captured in Africa Foundation's Drew Abrahamson said: “Take extra precaution, don’t walk around and if you need to travel in the evening, go in a vehicle.”

The Captured in Africa organisation says it was notified of one lion on the loose two weeks ago but on Thursday police in the area spotted another four.

The organisation says it’s working closely with police, Disaster Management and farmers to locate five lions.
