The lion could be with you in three days,Kate.
I love these stories about big cats and think it's possible there could be some living in the wild. It wasn't too long ago anyone could buy a lion cub and I can remember going into a pet shop in Newcastle and there were bear cubs for sale. When the Dangerous Animals Act came in I bet some people thought it was kinder to set their pets free if they couldn't comply with the act.
I hope if it does turn out to be an escaped lion he doesn't get shot.
