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.

On Twitter, they wrote: “This morning, colleagues received a very peculiar report in Tienhoven. Seen or heard anything?”
