Expert: Road Construction Pushing Lions out of Kenya Park

Saturday, 19 March 2016 11:31 AM

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A leading Kenyan wildlife expert says the noise from building a road is scaring lions out of Nairobi National Park and could lead to the death of people or the lions.

A lion injured a 63-old man Friday after it strayed from the Nairobi park into a major highway during the morning rush hour. Kenya Wildlife Service rangers captured and returned it to the park. It was third incident in the last two months of lions straying from the park.

Wildlife expert Paula Kahumbu said she suspects that the construction of a road joining two of the city's major highways along the boundary of the Nairobi park is disorienting the lions, who wander out of the park.
