KUWAIT CITY, Kuwait  - A passer-by lured a runaway lion roaming an upmarket suburb of Kuwait into his car and then called the police for help - an incident that raised concerns about wild animals kept as pets in the wealthy Gulf Arab state.

Video: See the lion in car

Pictures in Kuwaiti media showed the animal glaring out of the back of a police car after it had been transferred from the brave Biblical 'Daniel's own vehicle. The lion, which police said was a young adult, filled the back seat.


According to Kuwait police, the lion was picked up as it wandered the streets of Kuwait's Bayan district, south of the capital, on Saturday. A police source said: "The passer-by sat inside the car with the lion and then it became dangerous so the citizen called police who came and took it from that car to their (the police) car."

Police are apparently seeking the owner of the lion, believed to be someone who was illegally rearing it as a pet. Kuwait is a country where such animals are sometimes considered status symbols by rich individuals.
