Lions cause huge traffic jam while mating in the middle of the street (PHOTOS, VIDEO)


Two lions caused a traffic jam as they mated in the middle of the street at a national park in South Africa.

The male and female lion were pictured mating in front of several cars, causing a build up of more than 100 vehicles at Kruger National Park.

Cars had to veer off the road as the pair mated for more than 20 minutes as drivers tried to make noise in hopes of getting the lions to move.

Tourist Catherine van Eyk, 27, filmed the mating session and said she was one of the first cars at the scene.

Van Eyk said: 'We waited and watched them for about 20 minutes. When we got there we were lucky, because there were only roughly 20 cars. By the time we left there were around 120 cars.





'We were surprised that the lions continued to mate with so many cars around, we expected them to move off into the bush away from the cars, but they didn't seem bothered at all until people started making noise.

'Cars were able to get around them, but with a lot of difficulty - cars had to drive off the road and there was only enough space for one lane.

'The cars had to move extremely slowly as well.


'We didn't see any other lions around. A mating pair often go off on their own and join the pride at a later stage a few days after they're finished.'
