GAHANNA, Ohio (AP) — Police were looking Tuesday for a lion that several residents reported was on the prowl. “I’m convinced it’s a 300-pound to 400-pound African lion,” deputy police chief Larry Rinehart said. “We’re scurrying. It’s a heck of a day.”
GAHANNA, Ohio -- Officials have called off a search for a wild animal in Gahanna, Ohio.
Authorities received reports that a 300- to 400-pound African lion had been spotted in the Gahanna area four times in less than 24 hours.
It is unclear why the search was called off. Gahanna police scheduled a news conference for 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Police in the Columbus suburb of Gahanna are still searching for a lion on the loose.
A police helicopter flushed out a coyote in the area but so far no lion has been spotted.
