Lions jump park, at large in Nairobi city

Fri, Feb 19, 2016, 05:39 PM
At least four lions which have escaped from the Nairobi National Park bordering the capital, Nairobi, have entered the city.

Three lions and a lioness escaped not long after midnight and were spotted on the main roads in the city by morning, BBC reported.

Nairobi residents have been urged to stay away and report any further lion sightings to a free telephone line.

"Lions are dangerous wild animals. Don't confront them when you encounter them," Kenya Wildlife Service's Paul Udoto tweeted.

The BBC's Abdinoor Aden in Nairobi says the park is separated by a main road from densely populated neighbourhoods, including Kibera slum, in the south of the city.

Helicopters are expected to be flown to cite the lions and push them back to the park.
