Two lions have caused panic again in Nairobi after they were spotted in Ngong forest along the Southern by-pass on Monday morning.
Confirming the report through their social media platforms, Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) said that they had dispatched their team to hunt for the two elusive wild animals
According to KWS Communications Officer Paul Udoto, the big cats were spotted wandering around the Kenya Forest Service field station at the intersection between Karen and the by-pass.
The Wildlife protection authority has asked the public for assistance by providing information that would help in recapturing the animals first spotted by traffic officers.
A week ago, panic gripped Lang'ata residents after about six lions were reported to have escaped the Nairobi National Park and were seen roaming around Lang'ata hospital.
Rangers spent the better part of the day trailing the lions whose number was still unknown. According to KWS, motorists in the area noted that they first saw a pride of four lionesses at night after which another two were reported to have been on the loose.
One lioness was nabbed and safely sedated near Kibera area, with the others reported to have made their way back to the Park.
