This lion got press attention for holding a ball at London Zoo


Recommended Posts


Lucifer, a male Asiatic lion, holds a football painted in the England colours in his mouth at London's Zoo in Regents Park London, Thursday, May, 27, 2010. The zoo gave the media a opportunity to film the lions playing with a ball filled with meat and painted in the colours of England, who are due to compete in the the World Cup in South Africa.

I...can't tell whether thats awesome or cruel.

CG, that was why I had to post this because we all know that a picture is worth thousand words. Anyway, I knew that a lion is England's symbol if I get it right, and I found it odd that the zoo would put meat and other food in that ball. Seeing a lion eating food in a ball with the flag of England is quite odd.
