Backed up by a helicopter overhead, firefighters armed with paralysing weapons were mobilised for the search in the Seine-et-Marne district near the French capital.

“We have been running after it since this morning, police officers are trying to intercept it,” a police source said.

A local spotted the animal in a supermarket car park, took a photo and then alerted authorities.

It is as yet unclear where the animal comes from.
