A lioness appeared along a highway in China on Tuesday.
How she got there and where she came from was unclear, but one thing was certain: She was so far from the land where she belongs.
Even after the disoriented lioness lay down on the side of the road, people decided something drastic had to be done. "Maybe because she was tired or saw there were too many cars, the lion stopped and laid down," anhuinews.com reported, according to The Guardian.
After realizing they didn't have a tranquilizer gun with them, police fired their guns at her over 20 times.
Finally, the lioness was limp.
