Lions nap on road during South African lockdown

Lions nap on a road in South Africa’s Kruger National Park taking advantage of the lockdown. Park ranger Richard Sowry was out on patrol on Wednesday when he snapped a pride sleeping on a road which would normally be busy with tourists, BBC reported.
Kruger, like other wildlife parks, has been shut since 25 March as part of the coronavirus lockdown.
Big cats would usually only be seen by rangers on the roads by night. “Lions are used to people in vehicles,” he explained. “All animals have much more of an instinctive fear of people on foot, so if I had walked up they would never have allowed me to get so close,” the ranger said.
