Shocking moment a LION prowls through quiet streets near Rome

An escaped lion was captured on video casually walking down a residential street near Rome. The footage, shared on Twitter by a terrified local, showed the lion confidently strutting down the streets of Ladispoli, a town with a population of around 40,000. The woman filming could be heard exclaiming “Mamma mia” as the lion passed by. Some people were even trapped in their cars as the lion walked past. Authorities instructed locals to stay in their homes while they attempted to capture the lion, named Kimba. The mayor of Ladispoli, Alessandro Grando, urged residents to avoid travel until further notice. It took the authorities approximately seven hours to capture the lion, sedating it twice as it woke up the first time. According to local news outlet Corriere della Sera, the lion managed to escape multiple times before being captured by police at 10pm. Mr. Grando faced complaints from residents, stating that he did not grant permission for a circus in their town but could not block it. He confirmed the capture of the lion on Facebook and expressed hope that this incident would raise awareness about animal exploitation in circuses.
