The caracal was discovered by chance by the gendarmes of the North, who searched a home in Roubaix to investigate acts committed in an organized gang.
Fun discovery for the gendarmes in the North, who then investigate facts committed in an organized gang regarding car thefts. Nothing to do with animal trafficking, but the tracks lead them to Roubaix, as La Voix du Nord reports.
He had a lion cub in his apartment, the man “betrayed” by social networks tried on Monday
During the search of a suspect, the Gendarmerie Surveillance and Intervention Platoon (Psig) and the Specialized Gendarmerie Protection Platoon (PSPG) make this more than unexpected discovery: a caracal kept in a cage. The caracal is a large wild cat from Africa and Asia that resembles the lynx. It is protected and therefore cannot be stored without permission.
The feline was taken care of by the French Biodiversity Office and the firefighters who entrusted it to a zoo in the Loire.
