Looks like a domestic house cat to me, can't say its a Lion for sure, as there is no point of reference for sizing etc.

I live north of colorado springs and have never heard of this story. I consider myself rather up to date on in state media anyway. From the picture though its hard to tell exactly what it is because i can seem to find any reference points to judge its size. The article doesnt give much info about it either guess we will have to wait and see.

If i'm honest that 'picture' looks like a painting to me, but these kind of stories are all over the UK, lots of big cat sightings in the south of England. Lots of them are true from when big cats were allowed to be kept as pets and then when they got to big, just let go into the wild. The majority of the stories from over here though are pumas and panthers etc, a few cheetahs thrown in there aswell, never a male lion one though.

If someone can prove to me that a photo and not a painting it certainly looks like a lion, just look at the big thick neck and head like male lions have.

Not saying I'm a big cat expert or anything but I have lately visited some Zoo's with big cats and my girlfriend loves to watch animal planet and such so I am exposed to images of African lions at least twice a week.

The image in the look to me looks like a dog of what family or species I have no idea, but by looking at the furr on the back legs and by the tail its shaped like long hair dog. The coloring of the fur also doesn't make a very convincing african lion. But that is my opionion.

For me the questions not if its a lion or not because it definately looks like a lion but the question is whether its actually a photo or not, it looks like a painting.
