NEW AFRICA BUSINESS NEWS, Freetown, Sierra Leone- Limpopo government has confirmed that 14 lions believed to have escaped from the Kruger National Park (KNP) were seen roaming around Phalaborwa.
Phalaborwa residents living in and around the Faskor mine area have been warned to be on high alert and be safe while the field rangers were still trying to locate the pride.
In a statement released by the Provincial Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET), the department said field rangers have been allocated to monitor the pride’s movement.
The statement also read that. “A meeting held between LEDET, The Kruger National Park and Greater Balule concluded that the lions are to be captured and released back at Kruger National Park. Employees at Fasker Mine and members of the public are hereby advised to be alert at all times.”
After a toddler was harshly killed by a Leopard at the KNP on Wednesday, people are alert as they hope that the field rangers track the pride and lock it in the park again.
