9:00 AM | Wellington County OPP re­sponded to an an­i­mal com­plaint when a driver on High­way 6, Ke­nil­worth, ob­served a small lion cub on the side of the road. Of­fi­cers at­tended but the an­i­mal was gone. Po­lice iden­ti­fied the keep­ers of the lion and dis­cov­ered that it had es­caped its en­clo­sure near the point last seen. Of­fi­cers and the own­ers searched for ap­prox­i­mately an hour and lo­cated the cub a short dis­tance from its pen. The 60-pound cub was un­harmed and re­turned to its en­clo­sure. The owner is mak­ing ar­range­ments to fur­ther pro­tect the young lioness. 11:00 PM | A Moore­field man is fac­ing charges re­lated to drink­ing and driv­ing. Mem­bers of the Wellington County OPP were pa­trolling Wellington Road 7 south of Roth­say when they stopped a grey SUV and while speak­ing with the driver formed the opin­ion that he was un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol. A road­side screening test was con­ducted which re­sulted in a fail. He was ar­rested and brought to a lo­cal OPP oper­a­tions cen­tre for fur­ther test­ing. The 26-year-old man was then charged with ‘driv­ing with over 80 mgs of al­co­hol in 100mL of blood.’ A 90-day Ad­min­is­tra­tive Driver’s Li­cence Sus­pen­sion (ADLS) and seven-day ve­hi­cle im­pound­ment was ini­ti­ated as per statute. He is sched­uled to ap­pear in Guelph Court on June 29.
