Two lions were spotted in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, early this morning, a week after several lions escaped from a nearby national park.
The lions were seen by traffic police, who were patrolling a major highway in the city, Kenya Wildlife Service said in a statement.
A search team has now been dispatched to track the lions.
About a week ago, six lions strayed from the Nairobi National Park and were spotted in two heavily populated residential areas.
One of the lionesses, together with her cubs, were eventually tracked down and returned into the Nairobi national Park.
The others are believed to have found their way back into the park.
