Police operation: Police: Forces on site to protect the population

The police are still looking for the escaped wild animal in the area around Kleinmachnow south of Berlin. According to the police, it is most likely a lioness. "We are on site with massive forces to protect the population," said a spokeswoman for the West police department. The police called on people to be careful and avoid walking in the woods. But there is no curfew, it said.

A spokeswoman for the Potsdam-Mittelmark district said there was a veterinarian on site and two hunters with weapons. When the animal is found, a decision is made as to whether to use anesthetic or shoot it. "That will be decided depending on the situation." The search for the predator is a big challenge, said the spokeswoman.
