Nigeria: Lion, instead of a dog, used to guard private house

In Nigeria, an investigation by a wild animals task force led to a case where a lion was being used to guard a private house.

Nigerian authorities said that the house being guarded by a two-year old lion, was situated opposite a school. On Monday, the lion was put to sleep by a dart gun until it was taken to an animal zoo.

The lion’s owner was requested to report to Police or else he is arrested.

Reports said that small children attend the school facing the house concerned, as the school’s management expressed its concern on the safety of the children.

It appears that the lion had been guarding the house for the past two months.
