John McAdams of The Big Game Hunting Blog was driving in South Africa when he captured on video a lion walking in the middle of a busy street in Kruger National Park. The lion stopped traffic in both directions as visitors took pictures of the bizarre scene.

"We were driving through the southern portion of Kruger National Park and observing a group of hippo in the river when we saw a bunch of activity of the bridge ahead of us. Thinking that it might be a lion that was attracting all the attention, we drove up there to investigate. Sure enough, a young male lion was crossing the bridge and stopped all traffic in both directions," John McAdams said.
