UPDATE: MPD Investigating Possible Lion Sighting

Milwaukee Police received a call around 4:10 p.m. on July 20 from a person who saw what she believed was a lion in the 200 block of E. Garfield Avenue.  Officers checked the neighborhood for several hours but have received no further reports from anyone seeing a loose animal. Officers contacted the Department of Natural Resources, which advised that anyone seeing a wild cat should call authorities and not try to capture it.

UPDATE (7/22/15 at 3:10 p.m.):  For the past three days, MPD has received calls from concerned citizens who reportedly have seen a lion.  Each time a call is received, officers are sent to investigate and have found nothing.  There isn’t anything else to share at this point.
