Police warn against keeping wild animals as pets
September 9, 2013, 10:06 am

Police in Kuwait have warned against keeping wild animals as pets after a lion was caught roaming in the capital Kuwait City.

“People have to be very cautious when they select the animals they want to keep as pets in their homes,” Zuhair Al Nasr Allah, the head of the rescue police, said. “These animals must not represent a danger to the family members or the neighbours or common people in public places,” he said, quoted by the local media.

The lion, believed to be a young adult that escaped from a private home, was caught after a Kuwaiti reported seeing the animal “threatening people in Al Bayan area”.

A number of families in the Gulf tend to keep small zoos of exotic and wild animals despite repeated warnings from the local authorities
