Fear as Wild Lion escapes from Jos Wild Life Park

A lion has escaped from the Jos Wild Life Park on Wednesday according to Mr John Doy, the Acting General Manager, Plateau Tourism Corporation.

He said the lion escaped “at about 8 a.m. while it was being fed”.

Doy said that the lion, which had been caged since 1972,“ slipped through the gate of the cage when it was opened for its routine feeding”.

“The animal is still within the vicinity of the Park but our fear is that the Park is not fenced.

“We are struggling to recapture it, but we want members of the public to be vigilant,” he said.
