Lion Walks Around City Centre Like a BOSS

Columbus the lion was spotted walking around the city centre of Johannesburg, South Africa. Unlike other lions, this lion was part of a local production… but the film studio forgot to inform the authorities.

Without prior notice and road closures, people were scared like sh!t when they saw a lion walking past cars. The streets were emptied very soon.

PIC FROM CATERS NEWS: (PICTURED: Columbus, the lion, taking a stroll through the streets of Johannesburg. ) - Please paws when you reach the lights! While they usually roam the plains of Africa, it appeared that one lion wanted to take a city break. The wild cat was spotted strolling through the streets of Johannesburg, South Africa, and although it was a disconcerting sight, locals were swiftly reassured the situation was under control. The lion, named Columbus, was in fact starring in a local film production and had been borrowed from a nearby lion park, although the film company failed to notify the authorities. According to the Johannesburg Roads Agency, the filming had not been cleared and the film company took a risk by releasing the lion into the city, without previously getting approval to close several roads.

Irvaan Dolley, from Ibiza, Spain, who witnessed the lion walk past, said: ‘It was a strange sight to see the lion strolling through the city like that and my first thought was to run.’

  2. If you want to fight for lions and wildlife, then you need to realise how wrong this is.

    You blog post title I have serious issues with, totally irresponsible.

    This was also Lion Park in Johannesburg – exposed at the end of 2014 as having sold their lions into canned hunting, who offer cub petting and breed lions. A totally shocking facility… and this post is almost advocating that Lion Park filming and exploiting their lions is ok?
