A pride of lions in South Africa’s Kruger National Park was caught napping on an empty road that would otherwise be packed with tourists.
Park ranger Richard Sowry, who is an essential service employee to ensure the welfare of the animals, snapped the photos three weeks after wildlife parks in the country were shutdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
As he took photos with his mobile phone, the lions did not seem bothered, most of them apparently fast asleep.
While this was certainly a sight to see, there is one little problem, the rangers need to somehow ensure the tigers don’t assume that the roads are going to be safe to sleep on for the rest of their lives.
Eventually, cars will be back to driving on them, and he doesn’t want the tigers to get so used to all this open “land.”
