While walking her dog, a young woman finds herself facing a… young lion!

Gendarmerie de Pyrénées-Orientales

While walking with her dog in a town in the Pyrénées-Orientales, a woman was surprised to come across a lion cub. The young beast was entrusted to the gendarmerie, then to a specialized refuge. He is doing well.

Wednesday afternoon (January 15, 2020), around 4 p.m., a woman was walking her dog not far from Vinça (66), about thirty kilometers from Perpignan . So far, nothing abnormal. But the duo made an utterly astonishing discovery on their release.

Indeed, as reported by France Bleu , the canine and his mistress found themselves facing a lion cub . The little lion was alone, in the middle of nature, and seemed totally lost . The woman then took him in her car and went to an acquaintance in Saint-Laurent-de-la-Salanque , who informed the local gendarmerie brigade.

The soldiers took charge of the beast in a vehicle intended for the dogs of the canine unit, since it had a cage, but they quickly realized that it was too young and harmless to pose any threat. Rather, it was he who needed to be protected. Which they did before handing him over to a zoo in the area where he spent the night.

The next step was, this Thursday, to ensure his transfer to a refuge for wild animals . An animal manager said the animal was doing well . He is only a few months old and weighs around fifteen kilograms. He’s just a little scared , which is understandable given the trips he’s been through in such a short time.

An investigation has been opened to try to find out the origin of the lion cub.
