Authorities Aren't Sure Why Lions Are Escaping From A Kenyan Park

A man was hospitalized Friday after — for the fourth time in less than a month — a lion escaped from the nearby Nairobi National Park and wandered into downtown Nairobi.
Officials aren't sure how the lions are escaping, but some conservation experts are blaming human encroachment for the big cats' recent trips outside the park.
In 1946 when the park was founded, there were miles of wilderness between the park and most human settlements. Now, the city of Nairobi is right next to it.
