In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

African Lion Loose in Texas?

The Texas Cryptid Hunter has an item about the news report of a lion reported roaming around in Marshall, Texas. First thing I thought: did the reports include mention of a mane? Texas Cryptid Hunter asks the same thing. Is it a cougar, bobcat or something else -- like, a lion? And if a lion, is it male or female, and how did it get there? One possibility is an escapee from a "canned hunt" (bastards!) place, though I don't know if there are any in Marshall. According to the Animal Liberation Front, there are over 500 canned hunt sites in Texas.
