There’s still no sign of the four lions which escaped from the Kruger National Park.

The wild cats were last seen on Sunday evening a few kilometres from the park.

SANParks say that it is still not clear how they escaped.

Spokesperson William Mabasa has urged members of the public no to approach the animals if they spot them.

“The lions’ escape is not a security issue because it’s their pattern. Animals can escape anytime, especially around the Kruger National Park, looking at our fences and amount of rivers that are flowing into the park.”

According to SANParks spokesperson William Mabasa the four predators were last seen crossing the N4 in Matsulu, near the park.

Mabasa reiterated that residents should remain extra vigilant until the lions have been captured. The lions escaped from the park on Sunday night.
