On Friday police in Marseille found a one month old lion cub in a garage.

The garage employee was detailed by customs officials, and he claimed that he had taken the cub from a Marseille building because the owners were overwhelmed with the situation.

The cub has been placed with specialist group NGO, who shelter wild animals.

The cubs are worth 11,000€ on the black market.
