Game rangers are continuing to search for a lion that managed to escape from the Karoo National Park last weekend. The Karoo National Park is searching for the big cat across four farms located near Beaufort West.
As the South African National Parks spokesperson Reynold Thakhuli emphasized, people living in this area should not try to get closer to the animal if they notice it.
“We are advising people in this area to be on the lookout for this lion. They should not accost or try to get closer to it. So, we’re saying they must be safe, stay very far from it and report any sightings of the lion,” Thakhuli said.
This case is not the first one in the Karoo National Park. Sylvester the lion had managed to escape from the park back in 2015 and 2016 and was later found.
