The Essex Lion

EVERYONE got in a bit of a flap the other day because there were reports of a lion on the loose down in Essex.

One news website even published some tips on what to do should you encounter a lion. I kid you not, it said that if a lion attacked you, you should ‘fight back’.

Here’s my advice - run like the wind!

Obviously, it turned out there wasn’t really a lion. Someone had probably just seen a big Alsation or something.

It surprises me just how many weirdos are out there who insist big cats stalk our green and pleasant land.

The Beast of Bodmin springs to mind.

But many people are adamant that these beasts are lurking out there, despite there being no credible photographic or physical evidence such as footprints, droppings, or remains.

They should get in the real world.
