VIDEO: Milwaukee Police Hunt for Lion

Milwaukee residents were concerned on Saturday when many claimed to have spotted a ‘lion-like animal’ and police closed several streets while they searched.

Milwaukee police and the Department of Natural Resources responded to the area, but no animal was located. Police did maintain a presence overnight though.

Residents said they saw a lion and her cub on Saturday morning, Fox 8 reports.

The Milwaukee zoo confirmed that all of their lions were accounted for.

I am certainly no animal expert especially wild ones like this. I would bet however that if frightened the cat could move pretty fast to get out of that area. Could be especially dangerous with a cub along.

I hope they take it down alive with it's cub,if they can.

DEADMAN I agree with you on taking it alive with the cub. Preventing that would be some moron with a scoped rifle who thinks he is heap big hunter. I am sure they will use tranquilizer darts if at all possible. If people will just use their heads and keep pets and kids inside until they have the situation resolved.
