, NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 19 – The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) is appealing for help to get two lionesses that strayed from the Nairobi National Park.
KWS Spokesman Paul Udoto told Capital FM News they had received reports that the lionesses were last sighted around NHC houses in Lang’ata and other estates bordering the Southern by-pass.
“These are highly populated areas and that is why are intensifying the search,” he said on telephone, “anyone with information about them should share it with us immediately.”
He urged the public to contact KWS on toll free numbers 0800 597 000 or 0800 221 55 66.
“Our teams comprising veterinary officials have been in Lang’ata looking for the animals since 5am,” he said.
Lang’ata is a densely populated area and KWS officials and police fear the animals may cause damage unless they are found in time and taken back to the park.
Six lions are reported to have strayed from the park late Thursday but four of them were found.
