TOW­ING THE LION

New York Post - - NEWS -

A Pak­istani man who took his pet lion out for a drive in Karachi was busted af­ter video of the ride went vi­ral on­line. The clip shows a lion on a leash loung­ing in the back of a pickup on a busy street. Po­lice said busi­ness­man Saqlain Javed, who was ar­rested Wed­nes­day and freed on bail, is li­censed to run a per­sonal zoo but not al­lowed to trans­port the an­i­mal in city streets. He claimed to be go­ing home af­ter a visit to a vet, cops said. Keep­ing wild cats as pets is not un­com­mon in Pak­istan, where busi­ness­men are known to op­er­ate pri­vate zoos and pa­rade the an­i­mals in pub­lic.
