A lion escaped from a park and mauled a man in Nairobi — the latest incident of big cats straying into the bustling Kenyan capital

The man is undergoing treatment for his injuries, according to the Kenya Wildlife Service.
It tweeted Friday that its units have “taken control” of the lion and returned it to the Nairobi National Park.
Video posted on social media showed a black-maned lion sauntering down one of the city’s busiest streets.
It later disappears from camera view as motorists honk wildly and shout that it’s jumped on a man.
The Kenya Wildlife Service says it is unsure why there is a surge in escapes, but conservationists cite habitat loss as the central reason.
As one of the fastest growing cities in Africa, property values are increasing in Nairobi, and the park is getting encroached on by lucrative development projects.
The government also started building a highway through a section of the park, agitating the animals with constant noise.
