Wow...that's like finding out there's a shark loose in your swimming pool. Amazing animals...I've so much respect for that near perfect land killing machine.

Sounds like bs to me.

The zoo says its not theirs, and the fact is, there are no lions in Essex apart from in zoo's.

Its more than likely some plonka dressed up as one hoping to get a viral video on youtube....much like the one with the guy pretending to be a zombie.

A lion wouldnt be hard to find in clacton, so nearly 5 hours on, i find it fairly unlikely it is really a living breathing lion on the lose.

EDIT:

Ignore that last post, turns out it could be from a circus performing in town.

Haha I would laugh my ass off...
If it was a cuddle toy like the one previously. Where a special unit spent 7 hours or so ( I cannot recall) trying to surround the animal.

Well I would suggest to stay inside.
He can scrach!

On a additional note.
It is in essex. Who cares. As long as it rips the hearts out of 'the only way is essex' cast I will be happy enough to feed it myself with the little amount of pocket money I recieve

Would literally be the scariest thing ever to open your door and see a lion like 10 feet away strolling down the street.

prob would crap my pants and arm my self with knives ...( like that would help ..lol )...

The thing is though......for the most part, if it wants to get into your home, it has enough strength to.

Homes are build to keep people safe ,sheltered , and to keep people out....not to keep animals out.

This is blatantly a mistaken/fake sighting. Where would it have come from? The Zoo nearby (Colchester) reports all lions are accounted for, the circus that was there weeks ago did not have any lions in its performance. It could be just some massive cat, a wild one, but not a Lion.

the news (BBC) have stated that zoo workers have looked at the pic (dont think its been released yet and i dont know why) taken and have agreed it looks like a lion

they are still looking anyway

Yeah I heard that too, I think they are mistaken. I mean come on, where has it possibly come from?

Perhaps some mentalist had one as a pet somehow and it escaped? This is either an elaborate hoax or a whole lot of mistaken sightings.

WOW, what a TERRIBLE SHAME that you all didnt have FIREARMS to eliminate this threat over there in the UK...

How many innocent families and children will be watched EATEN ALIVE because nobody had the ABILITY to eliminate this THREAT?

Poor defenseless UK.

It looks real to me, this is the photo passed to the police/zoo etc with a lightened version for comparison:

Yes because the only way to deal with a lion is to shoot it dead, what a shame we haven't invented some kind of projectile containing something like a tranquillizer.

looks like a household cat on a garden fence, the car could simply be parked in a driveway. could be wrong though

is there any daytime photo's of the same angle (probably clutching at straws there).

Because, of course there is only one way to trap and sedate a lion and that's by blowing its head off, right?

No.

There are armed police and trained professionals looking for this thing - if it exists. Over here in the UK we prefer to let them do their job, rather than rush in like fools with all guns blazing.

I realise thats not your average rootin' tootin' Yosemite Sam all guns a blazin' "I hates that lion" mentality, but this is England and we're more civilised over here.

Still, thanks for the alarmist comments.

I'm interested in the validity of the photo, however, the average cat isn't shaped as powerfully, and its head is an awful lot smaller.
