In Kuwait, an escaped pet lion that had been roaming the streets after it ran away from its home was videoed being caught by a young girl. The online video shows the woman dressed in a Hijab subduing the lion.

According to the Arab Times, the lion was a pet and had been wandering the area causing panic among the local residents. The girl is shown pouncing on the young animal and grabbing him by the scruff of the neck while he struggles flailing his huge paws. Reports have suggested the lion is owned by the girl and her father.

The lion was able to be returned to his home before police had to be involved in its capture.

Still the video has gone viral, and the comments left by internet users have been wild.

    It seems to me that this girl has a trusted relationship with this lion. If the lion had wanted to harm her or kill her, it wouldn’t be much effort…….

    That being said, I really don’t think that “big cats” like lions, tigers, leopards… make good house pets……

    These animals are absolutely wild and unless one is an expert, and even then, horrible things can happen with the person maimed or dead and the animal is usually killed as well…….

    Perhaps this incident will serve as a wake up call for the owners to rehome this lion in a sanctuary……
