Lion found living in garage

A lion has been found living in the garage of a house in Rio de Janeiro.

Police officers found the big cat in the Brazilian city after complaints from worried people living nearby.

Neighbours in the neighbourhood of Campo Grande reported hearing the lion roaring during the night.

Householder Jesus Teixeira told police the lion was called Baby and had been living with his family for 15 years.

He had kept the lion after he sold his circus but has now been told he cannot keep the animal at his home.

Mr Teixeira told Estado de Sao Paulo: “I’m upset. I raised him, he is very calm and never attacked anyone. He grew up with my kids.”
