johannesburg - Armed Foresters and agents search around the South African Kruger Park to five escaped lions. The predators took the legs near Komatipoort on Monday, a place with about 5000 inhabitants.
'We think it's about five lions. They are in the sugar cane fields at the border with Mozambique, 'said a spokesman for the park. The animals can pose a danger to residents and cattle in the area, where there are several villages and farms.
It's not the first time a lion escapes from a wildlife park in the country. In 2015, the lion Sylvester succeeded in crawling an electric fence. After that he spent a lot of money on sheep in the area for weeks. Bushmen finally found Sylvester while the predator took a nap.
