A pet lion was confiscated by Cambodian authorities last week after it was spotted in several TikTok videos.

A pet lion that was confiscated by Cambodian authorities last month in an upscale Phnom Penh district has been returned to its owner after Prime Minister Hun Sen stepped in.

The lion was confiscated late last month after authorities saw TikTok videos of it roaming in a villa in April. It was then moved to a wildlife reserve.

The lion’s owner, whose name is Zhai Xinjiang, appealed to Cambodian authorities to have the lion returned.
