In a strange incident, a Kuwaiti man used his pet lion to terrify people going to the Abu Al-Hassaniya beach, reports Al-Rai daily.
The daily quoting some visitors said they were driving along a road leading to the beach and were shocked to see a lion chained to a tree blocking their way.
An Asian man guarding the animal said his sponsor had ordered him to keep a watch on the lion and prevent anyone from approaching the beach. Another guard prevented a photographer from the daily from taking pictures of the lion.
The daily added soon the Kuwaiti arrived on the scene and ordered everyone to leave the area and ordered his men to take the animal away.
