September 23, 2006 — Juarez police made quite a discovery when they found a caged lion in the back of U-Haul truck Saturday.

Police said they’d received reports from drivers near a colonia in east Juarez or an animal in a cage.

Officers stopped the driver, Jesus Garcia, who did not have any papers to transport the lion.

Garcia told police he bought the lion for 600 dollars.

He was arrested for traveling with an unregistered animal and for not having proper proof of ownership.
