The lion that reportedly escaped from the Kano Zoological Garden on Saturday has been found, right inside the zoo.
It was found resting inside a cage where goats are kept and had devoured all the goats.
Head of the zoological garden, Sai’du Gwarzo confirmed the finding told BBC Hausa on Sunday.
“The rangers had succeeded in locking up the cage before the lion was shot with an injection which made him less harmful before it was captured and returned to its cage,” he said.
The escape was said to have occurred around 9 pm on Saturday when rangers were trying to put the lion back to its cage after returning from the national agricultural show which took place in Nasarawa State.
