Boomer the African Lion Captured Outside of Ottawa
Here Kitty Kitty…
Boomer the African lion has been successfully captured outside of Ottawa. The two-year-old little cub is now sitting in a jail cell waiting for wildlife officials to take custody of him.
A six-month-old lion cub, whose escape from his home on an aboriginal reserve near Maniwaki, Que., on Tuesday prompted an intensive police search, is now sitting in the clink.
Boomer was captured by Quebec provincial police officers around 12:45 a.m. Thursday after a woman spotted the 70-kilogram male African lion hiding in a ditch along Highway 105 and called police.
Officers were able to get a rope around Boomer's neck and led him into the back seat of a cruiser. He was taken to the Kitigan Zibi police station, where he is sitting in a jail cell until wildlife officials can take custody of him.
He was not aggressive when officers approached and no one was injured.
