UPDATE: South African National Parks announced in a Facebook post Thursday that a lion has been darted and recaptured. Recent reports suggest the lion is Sylvester. He will be kept in the park "until a final decision is reached on his future."
A 3-year-old lion named Sylvester may face death - all because he tried to wander far from home.
Sylvester escaped from South Africa's Karoo National Park on Sunday. He managed to crawl under an electric fence after heavy rains had loosened the dirt, the BBC reports. This wasn't the first time he'd escaped. Last year, he was on the run for three weeks.
