Escaped "Lion" in Essex


If its true then **** meeting that on the way home from the pub
Essex plod can't be that good though...says they need help to identify the lion...**** me its not that hard is it! Perhaps its wearing a mask? dressed in a Bhurka? Any other suggestions for a SERE kit for a Lion?

From the 'Wail'

"Police have advised residents living in the area of St Osyth, Essex not to leave their homes after a lion was spotted in a nearby field.

The animal was seen in fields off Earls Hall Drive in St Oysth, near Clacton, just before 7pm tonight.

Officers from Essex Police are currently working with experts from Colchester Zoo in order to identify it."

BBC says that all the Lions in Colchester Zoo have been accounted for, so **** knows were it's come from.

Edited to add: in before some smart arse says, "Africa!":grin:
Further update -

Lion was reported to have come from the back of a large wardrobe accompanied by a faun. It is believed that the lion answers to the name of Aslan.
Do they happen to have an officers leg?
Wouldn't fancy being an ordinary uniformed peeler with a baton, meeting big hairy pissed off lion who's starving because no **** will leave their houses.

Any rough estates within a few hundred miles that the lion could be pointed towards.
In Essex? Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots.
If a Gazza's best mate (Raoul Moat) could evade the peelers for days, then I reckon a lion has a chance off never being caught.

Would it be able to claim any form of title, for eating a few of the cnuts who live in the sink estates?


Maybe someone's done a Terry Thompson and set it loose - watched a documentary on it the other day Ohio animals killed: Lions, tigers shot dead after escaping from US zoo | Mail Online

There's meant to be a puma roaming around ulster... when it was first spotted/photographed (tbh it's not a convincing photo) there were genuinely nutters cruising around in cars looking for it - feck knows what they were going to do once they came face to face with it, but one such carload of nutters allegedly scared it off just as the uspca was about to dart it and it's never been seen again (that I know of).

Safari anyone?
On their webby:
Residents living in the St Osyth area are being advised to stay indoors after police received reports of a lion being seen in a field.

The large cat, believed to be a lion, was seen in fields off Earls Hall Drive in St Oysth, near Clacton, just before 7pm this evening, Sunday, August 26.

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.

There is an increased police presence in the area, including firearms officers and the police helicopter searching near where it was spotted.

Police are also trying to establish where the lion may have come from.

Anyone who sees the lion is advised to call 999.

They go on to say that if the lion is still loose tomorrow then they'll facilitate media interviews... Anyone speak lion?
