It was Pride weekend, after all.
Those people are just lion.
Why not? Lions and unicorns are on the coat of arms for the UK. Presumably they are native fauna.
Well, they used to be at any rate: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panthera_leo_spelaea#History_and_distribution
Officials confirm that the Snipe remains at large, last seen in the company of a wild goose.
I believe that Florida still has a monkey/ape on the loose.
That’s not a very nice thing to say about the RNC.
here’s a nice, long article for you to soak up your SARCASM TIME
A… rampant lion?
There were several definitive statements from the police that the photos absolutely, positively showed a lion. Here’s one of the photos. Srsly.
They just released higher-res pictures.
It seemed a lot more convincing with the original caption.
Here’s a close-up.
Meh. Big whoop.
It’s a cover-up; Panthera britannica is real
The lion probably just went into hiding what with being an illegal immigrant and all.
The lion is clearly not an immigrant. It was speaking perfect native Essex English on twitter.
OK, who left the wardrobe open again?
The Daily Mash has what looks like a plausible report on the item:
Follow up: in an attempt to prevent two dolphins from mating at a local aquarium an employee was returning from the seaside with two baby seagulls, since their cheeping is the only thing known to quell the amorous desires of dolphins. On his return trip he noticed the lion sleeping in the middle of the road. Unable to go around it he carefully stepped over it.
He was later arrested for transporting young gulls across a sedate lion for immoral porpoises.
A man walks into a bar with a giraffe. They both get pissed. The giraffe falls over. The man goes to leave and the bartender says, “Oi. You can’t leave that lyin’ there.” And the man says, “No. It’s not a lion. It’s a giraffe.”
