Efforts are underway to return the lion that escaped from the Karoo National Park back to Beaufort West. He spent the night behind bars in Sutherland in the Northern Cape. A group of locals gathered as the lion was removed from police cells this morning. He was darted and caught yesterday evening on a farm about 20 kilometres from Sutherland. The lion was then transported by helicopter to the local police station. He’ll be taken back home in a crate. Last week, SANParks said it received reports that several animals had been killed on a farm near Sutherland. The lion had been on the run for close to a month.
