First located on Saturday afternoon at the end of the shift, “Lion” (now known as Leo) was spotted on Sunday morning by a general duties officer, and again at 1pm by prosecutors.
Due to heavy rainfall overnight, cold and wet, Leo was still “lion” in the same spot on Monday morning.
A property officer has now taken Leo into custody. Leo is currently in a safe, dry place and is in dire need of affection with a good bath and brush.
If you recognise this lovable Lion please contact Gladstone Police Station on(07) 4971 3222 for Leo’s safe return home.
