    British police stop searching for lion reported to be roaming freely

    Police have called off a search for a lion reportedly on the loose in Essex.

    Officers have spent almost 24 hours combing the countryside around Clacton-on-Sea after a group of residents yesterday claimed to have seen the king of the jungle near Earls Hall Drive in St Osyth.
    An Essex Police spokesman said: "We believe what was seen on Sunday evening was either a large domestic cat or a wildcat.
    The force originally advised residents to remain indoors as the search got under way after 7pm yesterday.
    Helicopters with heat-seeking equipment were scrambled to an area where the creature was apparently seen and experts from Colchester Zoo were called in to help.
    They were shown images of the animal captured by a local and could not rule out that it was a lion.

    Not hard to find, Jenna. You can see a White Lion in the middle of most of our roads.

    I prefer the White Lion you often find on corners.
    Or the White Hart
    Or the White Swan...........

    A common mistake made when trying to come up with a totally foolproof design is to completely underestimate the innate ingenuity of fools.


    The last thing I want to do is hurt you but it's still there on my list of options, so are you coming quietly.........?

    Nothing to say about a prank that got international coverage somehow. Who put this to ink in the first place? Now there's a story...which won't be told by that same 'always open' press.

    here's two red lions I saw myself!

































    The witnesses were probably on the way home from one of these when they saw the beast?
