A jogger running through a field in the central Netherlands got a surprise on Sunday when an abandoned lion appeared on the route.

The cub - which is believed to be four months old - was found in a small cage outside of Utrecht.

It was taken to the Lion Foundation in the northern Netherlands after being examined by a vet, according to public broadcaster NOS.

Local police have made a public appeal for information on its owner.

I'll bet that jogger is the person that put it there and just wanted to find a way to get it better care without getting in trouble.

Wishing the best for the lion cub, he/she deserves to be with its feline family. Sadly will not be able to be wild and free.
The person(s)responsible for this crime need to be punished and never able to do it again, for the sake of all wildlife.

He is doing well:

The lion cub found dumped in a meadow in Tienhoven on Sunday, is doing well at Stichting Leeuw, the foundation said on Facebook. "Between all the hectic, the little one is entertaining himself well, eating and drinking well and still sleeping a lot", the foundation said. The foundation named the cub Remy. 

On Wednesday the foundation's veterinarian will give Remy a thorough medical check-up, as well as his vaccinations. Remy can be "adopted" on the foundation's website from Tuesday. Those who adopt the lion cub won't be able to take him home with them, but can help pay for his care.

I`ve heard on the news yesterday that he will will be taken to the wild when he will be old enough. Above all, we can be lucky that he hasnt been killed by his owner for whatever reasons.

Maybe the cub was stolen or smuggled into the country and the people decided they didn't want the cub or were worried about being caught with the cub.  At least they just didn't set it loose. Still with no food or water the cub couldn't have lasted long.  If the person or persons that did this are caughgt, they should be placed in a cage and abandoned in the middle of nowhere.
