Members of the Secunda Dog Unit urged people to be on the lookout for a lion in the Leeupan Dam area.
It is suspected that the lion was stolen and then escaped while it was transported in the area between Standerton and Leslie.
According to Capt Joubert of the dog unit, they got a phone call from someone who spotted the lion, but he said it is not confirmed yet.
“We did not find any tracks of the lion yet,” said Capt Joubert.
If you see the lion or have information, contact Johan Coetzee from the Nature Conservation Department at 072 361 6104.
