Jogger “runs into” lion cub

Yesterday morning, in Tienhoven, Netherlands a local man was enjoying his daily jog through a field when he stumbled upon a lion cub in a cage. The man reported the incident to the authorities, and they have since then urged anyone who might know anything to come forward. The act of owning a wild animal, like a lion, is illegal in the Netherlands and the cub was evidently smuggled into the country and abandoned.


The 4-month-old cub was examined by a vet and kept in quarantine before it was moved to the “Lion Foundation” in the northern Netherlands where it can hopefully be rehabilitated.
