French police have seized a lion cub from an apartment in a Paris suburb.

The six-week-old exotic animal - whose owner has been arrested - was in good health, and has been taken to a wild animal park in Seine-et-Marne.

According to the country's National Hunting and Wildlife Agency, the cub was found on a child's bed this week at the apartment in Val-de-Marne, while its 30-year-old owner was hiding in a neighbour's closet.

It's thought the man was planning to try and sell the lion, while police were tipped off after seeing videos of the baby animal on social media.
