African Lion May Be Roaming Near Reagan Library

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. -- Authorities in California are looking for one really big cat.

The large exotic cat, estimated to weigh 600 pounds, may be an African lion. It's been seen roaming the rural countryside near the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.

Professional trackers were brought in to hunt for the animal after several sets of tracks, far too large for native bobcats or mountain lions, were found on a ranch not far from the hilltop library.

Officials have warned residents in the area to be wary and to keep their pets indoors.

Is this a pet that escaped? How does this happen?

Perhaps another Neverland Ranch refugee?

That is just bizzare! I've heard of big snakes getting out but this? Maybe it ate its owner.

How can this be?
I thought all big cats had to be registered with the State to prevent this from happening.

Someone must have gotten it from a cat show.

We need to close the cat show loophole and only let them sell beef jerky and Indian jewlery.

You mean preban lions don't go bad after awhile and are not obsolete already!?!?!

There are no preban lions. They have all died off.
This is clearly a post ban lion and someone just didn't want to jump throught all the hoops of getting rid of it through a certified AL pet store. I think there are only 2 in the state, and there is quite alot of paper work to do this.
I hear the easiest way to catch them is to bait them with a couple of PETA representives. After the post ban lion eats them, he gets real sick from all the political B.S. that they contain and will turn himself in for treatment.

Rascal,

I think you're getting confused on the PETA issue.

The hope is that the lion will choke on their bony vegan frames or in the case of the fatasspeta chick...that the lion develops a case of explosive diarreha from all the tofu and soy milk in their system.

Honest mistake, though.

I think the porko in this picture may have had something to do with it:

Word on the street is all the petshops in a 20 mile radius can't keep up with the gerbils so he's hitting up animal shelters.

Maybe it was a preban lion with a limited 10 claw capacity and a muzzle guard? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Another one for Cal. Fish and Game wardens... it's so easy to tell the difference between lion tracks and tiger tracks - the tiger tracks have stripes! Duuuh. Peace and God bless, Wolfsong
