A lion on the loose. It is surprising how many sightings of big cats there used to be. You don’t hear of it so much these days, not to say that they aren’t still reported. Recently there were a few separate sightings of what people believed to be a lion on the side of the road near Alice Springs. A lion was never found but really, there is a lot of space out that way for a big cat to avoid any search.
I am glad that travelling circuses are fewer in number these days if they have such a hard time keeping track of their large predators!
