Gujarat: Lioness hops on bridge, halts traffic

Traffic came to a halt after an Asiatic lioness was spotted roaming on a bridge in Gujarat’s Amreli district, forest officials said yesterday.

The lioness was spotted on the bridge on Sunday night on the bridge at Pipavav, because of which the traffic movement there stopped for about 20 minutes. Later, she got down from the bridge and disappeared.

Deputy Conservator of Forest, Amreli Range, Mohan Rahul said the lioness, who had possibly strayed from its habitat,
did not hurt anybody before it disappeared.
