Hey, Otto. Is this van making a funny rumbling sound?

According to the BBC thieves in Germany stole a circus van  unaware that there was a lion sleeping in the back. They abandoned the van after hitting a road sign and escaped, probably still  not knowing about the lion. Police didn’t know about it either until they opened it after having the van towed to an impound lot.

The lion? He’s fine after having a refreshing nap.
