KARACHI: Panic gripped the area near Aisha Bawany College after a young lion was spotted taking a casual stroll along Karachi’s busiest artery, Sharea Faisal, on Tuesday evening after escaping from a car it was being transferred in. 

The video shows the lion exploring the city as vehicles and people pass by. 

According to Geo News, the lion after escaping then went inside the parking lot of the building. The authorities somehow managed to put the lion inside a cage and sent it to safety.
