Prague Driver Transports White Lions in Trunk

Prague Driver Transports White Lions in Trunk

It’s not unusual to spot, say, a large dog in the back of a car while you’re on the road.

But how would you react to spotting a pair of white lions in the trunk of the car ahead of you?



“Maybe I am overworked or I have stopped taking drugs :D,” motorist Jenda Štědronský posted to Facebook last week. “There is a BMW in front of me and it has two white lions in the trunk, or am I seeing things???”

The driver posted photos of the trunk full of lions to Facebook, leading many commenters to question if they were actually real. But photos appear to be unaltered, and the animals change position in them.  

Judging by some of the signs spotted on the road, the photos appear ot have been captured in the town of Řevnice, southwest of Prague.

The photos quickly went viral after they were uploaded to Facebook in February 10, racking up over 3,000 shares.

Local tabloid Blesk picked up the story a few days later, and the UK’s Daily Mail shared the photos yesterday. 

According to the Daily Mail, “Czech police have so far refused to comment on the images.”
