BERLIN (AP) — A white lion cub was discovered in the trailer of a van following a highway crash in southwestern Germany, but the 7-month-old female is doing just fine, a zoo that took in the animal said Wednesday.
The rare cub was found inside a box in the trailer after the van collided with two other vehicles on the A5 highway near Heidelberg on Tuesday. The van's driver and two passengers, all citizens of Slovakia, were taken to the hospital with injuries.
The lion emerged from the crash uninjured and was taken to a reptile zoo in the town of Landau, German news agency dpa reported.
