Relief as lost lions, cubs found, returned to Nairobi National park

19 February 2016, 18:48

Nairobi - A lioness and a cub that strayed out of Nairobi National Park on Friday were found near Kibera while two others likely returned before dawn.

Kenya Wildlife Services spokesman Paul Gatitu told The Star that as far as they are concerned all is is well.

" We are grateful to the public," he is quoted as saying.

As reported by News24 earlier, there was alarm that six lions had sneaked out of the park.

Gatitu said the lioness that was found in a search and rescue operation may have been looking for a place to give birth.

He said it may have crossed over to the area, disturbed about the security of her cub.

According to The Daily Nation, the wildlife service had advised any person who spots the lions to call KWS on toll-free numbers 08002215566 or 0800597000.

Mr Udoto said the KWS was aware that a lioness had cubbed on the border of Lang'ata Barracks and the park and was monitoring the situation.

The spokesman said lions have been straying out of the park into the army barracks in Lang'ata through culverts.

He said that for the last three weeks, the service has received reports of lions spotted in the barracks.

“We locked the culvert last week for lions to be captured and brought back to the park,” he said.
