A member of the crime family makes a plea for a lost lion in Berlin

Police have been looking for a wild animal that got away for more than a day, but they haven’t found it yet.

Now, the son of the head of the Remmo family has said that he can “lead the lioness back to her enclosure.”

Firas Remmo has asked the government not to kill the animal.

In a social media post, he asked anyone who knew where the animal was to “tell him first” so he could help “before some idiot shoots her.”

It’s not the first time he’s been linked to big cats. In December, he shared a video of himself and a tiger cub online with the words “my new favorite pet.” This led the police to start looking into the situation.

Still, it’s not clear if the animal being looked for is a lioness because no paw prints or DNA evidence, like animal waste, have been found in the places where the animal was said to have been seen.

But cops told the BBC that they think a video that is going around from the Kleinmachnow area is real.

They said that two cops saw the animal from about 20 meters (65 feet) away on Thursday night and knew it was a “big cat.”

Some people aren’t so sure. One expert told the Berlin radio station RBB that the animal looks more like a boar, which is common in the area, based on video he had seen.

Local zoos, animal shelters, and shows said that no lions had gotten out of their care.

The search for the animal was stepped up on Friday after experts said it should be scaled back the night before.

About 120 police officers and wildlife experts, like vets, are now searching the woods near where they live. There are also drones, airplanes, and cameras that look for heat.

The mayor of Kleinmachnow, Michael Grubert, said that the first goal of the mission to find the animal was to catch it, but that police officers would only take other steps if their lives or the lives of others were in danger.

Overnight, about a dozen people told police they might have seen the animal. Some of these reports came from the wealthy Zehlendorf neighborhood, which is inside Berlin’s city limits.

Officers were not pleased, though, when young people played loud roaring lion sounds on a speaker near where they were looking.

“That doesn’t help the people in the area or the police in their search for the animal,” Kerstin Schroder, a police spokeswoman, told RBB.

Paul Landau, who lives in the area that was checked at first, told the news agency Reuters that he thought there was a dangerous person in the area.

“At first, it wasn’t clear if it was about a lioness or another wild animal. All they said was to close all the doors and windows and not let anyone in,” he said.

“So, we thought it was about a person and not an animal.”

Residents have also been told to keep their pets with them and stay away from forest areas.

Heribert Hofer, who works at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research in Berlin, told Reuters that if you see a wild animal, you should stop and not run away.

“You also shouldn’t turn your back on the animal if you can help it. And you shouldn’t look the animal in the eye either.”

Authorities were looking in a big area next to a wooded area where people walk their dogs because they thought the lioness might be sleeping there.

On Thursday night, police told a local resident that they had “just seen” the lioness and that the search for the animal had entered a “hot phase.” The German news outlet Bild also said that cops yelled at joggers to “get out of the woods quickly.”

Mr. Hofer says that it is against the law to keep big cats personally in Berlin, but it is possible to do so in Brandenburg, the state that borders Berlin.

He told the German news station Deutsche Welle that the owner must have a license and meet other strict rules.

Vanessa Amoroso, who is in charge of the wild animals in trade unit at Four Paws, said that the fact that big cats are allowed as pets in many European countries made it much easier to trade them.

She asked the German government to put rules on people who trade unusual animals or keep them as pets.

“Because Germany is one of the world’s biggest markets for wild animals as pets, effective steps are needed to stop buyers from getting animals easily through online platforms and exchanges,” she said.

Los Lelanchon from the International Fund for Animal Welfare said that social media has made it more popular to have unusual pets, and big cats are seen as a sign of wealth.

“This careless trend needs to stop so that animals don’t have to suffer and people don’t have to worry about their lives,” he said.
