Despite thorough efforts by JSPCA inspectors, they have yet to verify the presence of the lion or lioness conclusively. The Facebook post, however, takes a cautious stance and strongly discourages approaching the animal if anyone encounters it.

The post urges residents to “remain indoors and promptly contact our Duty Inspector at 083 604 1172. While we cannot confirm the veracity of this report, we are unwilling to take any risks. In South Africa, unexpected events are not uncommon!”
