Putin Releases Over 500 Lions On The Streets Of Russia To Make Sure People Stay Indoors

Many countries are enforcing a lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus, which has already claimed more than 13,000 people and infected over 3 lakh globally. Social media is full of measures taken by respective governments to fight the menace.
Amid this, a post is going viral claiming that Russian President Vladimir Putin has released 800 tigers and lions across the country's streets to force people inside. Facebook page "Humour TV" posted a picture of a lion on an empty street with the caption, "Vladmir Putin has dropped 800 Tigers and lions all over the country to push people to stay home."
Till the filing of this story, the post was already shared more than 18,000 times. The post is viral on Twitter as well.
Damn. Desperate times call for desperate measures I guess. Credit to President Putin for taking the epidemic so seriously. Seems a bit much to use lions as a way to keep people indoors, but that's neither here nor there. Wash your hands people.
