sadly we are all used to seeing animals on the roads that have been hit by
cars, however the other day we saw something very strange. Call me potty
if you like but on the A334 JUNC 34 between Albox and direction Partaloa
I’m convinced we saw a tiger / lion lying in the central reservation. Did
anyone else see this too or am i to go and see my doctor ?
Well.. there are a few circus around at the moment… but I would have thought it would have made the news!!!
Large dog? Iberian Ibex? Even a wild boar? Any suggestions anyone?
Perhaps León el Africano, of whom Mr Belloc may have been thinking when he wrote:
The Lion, the Lion, he dwells in the Waste,
He has a big head and a very small waist.
