Remy, a lion cub found dumped in a meadow near Tienhoven last month, is doing really well, according to the foundation that is looking after him. After spending a month in quarantine and getting all his vaccinations, Remy will be moving into his own habitat on Wednesday, Stichting Leeuw said on Facebook.
Three teenage boys were killed when the car they were in hit a streetlight on Sportlaan in the Noord-Holland town of Anna Paulowna during the early hours of Saturday morning. The boys, two age 16 and one age 15, were all from the town. A 17-year-old girl from Anna Paulowna and a 20-year-old man from Oudesluis were injured. The man from Oudesluis was later arrested as a suspect, the police said.
The abused lion Omar was allowed to explore his new home in Anna Paulowna in Noord-Holland for the first time on Tuesday. Omar was rescued by Stichting Leeuw early this month and brought to the Netherlands from Slovakia, where he lived under very miserable conditions.
