Jogger in Netherlands finds lion cub

A jogger running through a field in the central Netherlands got a surprise on Sunday when an abandoned lion appeared on the route. The cub – which is believed to be four months old – was found in a small cage outside of Utrecht. It was taken to the Lion Foundation in the northern Netherlands after being examined by a vet, according to public broadcaster NOS.

Local police have made a public appeal for information on its owner.It was certainly not business as usual for a force on patrol in Tienhoven, a village about 10km (6 miles) to Utrecht’s north.
