Adorable Lion Cubs Found in Back of Moving Truck

Helping stranded motorists in broken down cars is a common — if not the most exciting — incident that police have to face on a day-to-day basis. But when officers in Bologna, Italy, found a broken down truck, they were in for a bit of a shock: the vehicle contained two adorable lion cubs and an adult tiger in the back.

Don’t worry, no blood was spilled this day; in fact, the incident only spurred some petting, playing, and the perfect photo op.

It turns out that the adult tiger and lion cubs found inside were being legally transported to their new home in Malta when the truck, called a “lorry” in the video above, broke down. The officers took a moment to pet the cubs, then helped the driver fix his truck so he could be on his way. As you’ll see in the video, the cubs were loving the attention, and seemed especially interested in coming out to play with their new friends.

As for the adult tiger? Check out the video above to see how police dealt with it, and how the beautifully dangerous beast responded to all the attention.
