Tiny Lion Terrorizes Suburban Neighborhood
Residents of Morton Grove, IL have locked themselves in their homes after hearing reports of a lion roaming the streets of the normally quiet suburb.
"It’s not clear if this is a wild animal or an escaped cat from a nearby zoo or circus," says Officer Donald Kelly at the county sheriff’s office. "One thing’s for certain — he is ferocious, and people should not venture out into the street until he’s caught."
A few daring locals have captured photographs of the beast.
"He’s a lot smaller than I thought," says Brenda Walsh, who snapped the pic above. "I mean, I probably could have scooped him right up. But, it’s probably best to leave that to the authorities."
