Folks in the Tampa Bay, Fla. area might want to be careful today, as there's reportedly a lion on the loose. According to ABC Action News, Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission officials say the seven-year-old, female lion escaped from its space at the Survival Outreach Sanctuary in Spring Hill

Its whereabouts were unknown until officials said it was spotted lurking around the perimeter of the sanctuary, where Florida Fish and Wildlife officers are working to tranquilize it. According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, the lion will soon be returned to its cage. It was fun while it lasted.
