Durban - A lion is on the loose after it escaped near Ulundi in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday, Ezemvelo Wildlife said.

"A member of the public reported seeing a lion around 01:00 between Intibane lodge and Ophathe game reserve which is along the King Dinuzulu highway in Ulundi," spokesperson Musa Mntambo said.

Ezemvelo Wildlife conservation officer Jabulani Biyela visited the area and confirmed that tracks from a lion had been found.

Mntambo said at this stage it was not clear where the lion escaped from.

"Our guys are following the tracks, and we advise people to call us if they see the lion."

      Who can blame these animals when this country is fast becoming a circus.

    Pythons, now lion. are these people trying to humans? "Our guys are following the tracks, and we advise people to call us if they see the lion." Surely they will do if they are victims of the lion.

    So in the past 3 years while having to watch our backs because of the ANC and criminals we've also had to be on the lookout for: 1) A tiger 2) Two pythons 3) and now the lion? There's never a dull moment.
