Thai police to charge two over pet lion spotted cruising in Bentley

Police in Thailand have arrested a woman whose pet lion was pictured going on a joyride in the streets of Pattaya.

Authorities in Thailand said Sawangjit claimed to have bought the animal from a Thai man in Nakhon Pathom province, who successfully facilitated its delivery to Pattaya.

The man who sold the lion to Sawangjit will also face charges of moving an animal without permission.
