      Lion Loose in Essex

      Apprently there is a lion loose in the St Osyth area.

      The large cat, believed to be a lion, was seen in fields off Earls Hall Drive in St Oysth, near Clacton, just before 7pm on Sunday, August 26, 2012. Officers from Essex Police have been working with experts from Colchester Zoo who believe the reports to be genuine after being shown a photograph from a member of the public.
      St Osyth residents advised to stay indoors following reports of lion seen in field

      It must be an intelligent one, and also it has a great sense of humour.

      Normally Essex Girls prefer to wear Leopard Skin.

      Aww... I've just checked the BBC site. Apparently the search has been called off as there is no sign of it.

      BBC News - Essex 'lion': Police call off St Osyth animal search

      Perhaps some Essex Girl did want a Lion Skin outfit then after all.

      Re: Lion Loose in Essex

      I bet this person feels rather silly now, especially having heard a roar.

      Che Kevlin said he heard what he believed to be a roar whilst out walking his dog on Sunday night.

      "It was worrying as we had just been for a walk with the dog. We saw the police helicopter but thought it was just searching for a person," he told the BBC.

      "It sounded like the roar of a lion. We have a field and wood just behind our fence, so you never know."
      Here's the picture that started it all off.
