By Brendan O’Brien MILWAUKEE (Reuters) – Police closed off streets near a park in north Milwaukee on Saturday night after reports of a “lion-like animal,” which came days after people said they had a seen a lion prowling city streets. Milwaukee police and the Department of Natural Resources responded to the area, at 30th and Fairmont streets, for what a police statement called “a confirmed sighting of a lion-like animal.” The animal was not located, it added, but police would maintain a presence throughout the night. Local residents reported earlier on Saturday they had seen a lion and her cub in a creek in the park.
