Kenya Wildlife Rangers Probe Sighting of Lions out of Park

Monday, 29 February 2016 10:06 AM

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenya wildlife authorities say they have deployed a tracking team to investigate reports that two lions were spotted outside Nairobi National Park near a residential area.

Kenya Wildlife Service spokesman Paul Gathitu said Monday they could not find a truck driver who told a motorcycle rider that he had spotted the lions along Ngong Road in the capital. That information was relayed to police officers on patrol who told traffic police who reported it to the wildlife service.

Gathitu said it is possible that the lions were among a group of six that wandered out of the Nairobi park earlier this month. He said the lions could be staying in the Ngong forest adjacent to the park.

Nairobi National Park hosts diverse wildlife, just six miles from downtown Nairobi.
