Milwaukee police searching for lion reported on streets

MILWAUKEE (WLS) -- Police in Milwaukee are going street by street searching for what is believed to be a lion.

Cell phone video from earlier this week shows the animal on the city's north side.

Saturday dozens of calls were placed to 911 about a possible sighting.

Now it's believed the lion is a lioness because witnesses reported seeing a cub roaming the streets next to the large cat.
