    African Lion sighting........

    See how rumors get spread, "I swear it was a Mountain Lion not a Bobcat". For those that don't get the inside joke check this out. This scare happened in Colorado Springs this past weekend.

    I saw this today on a bathroom door at Lake Silverwood and thought "WTF?" Then looked over my shoulder. Moe looks menacing but I think I could take him.

    Unfortunately, here in NorCal, we had someone who said they were attacked by mountain lion, but they couldn't be substantiated. No wonder the guy isn't going public with his identity.

    A chimp is 5 times stronger than a man. He could pull you apart. Keep smiling at him.

    Wow, the owners of this particular chimp have had a rough time in the last few years. They've raised Moe since he was a baby, he's 42 years old now, (pup? little guy? what do you call a little chimp?) in their West Covina home. In 99 Moe was removed and placed in the shelter he escaped from. A few years ago the owners / parents, they raised him as their child, toilet training him, and taught him to eat at the table with a knife and fork, they went to visit Moe on his birthday and they were attacked by two other chimps that escaped their cages. The man's nose was bit off, he lost fingers, and the chimps also tore into his crotch doing unspecified damage. That's really sad, both for the chimp that will probably die from a rattlesnake bite and for the owners who raised Moe as their child.

    It seems this sanctuary up in the San Berdoo has a hard time keeping their chimps under lock and key.

    life was so much simpler when all we had to fear was fear itself.

    Apparantly, he can drive a car too. He could be anywhere. I thought I saw him in Crestline at a bar, but it turned out to be a local gal.

    Thats a dog in that picture, thats NOT an african lion...you can tell by its tail, its much to short and thick to be a lion, also lions dont hunt/graze with there tails sticking up in the air, lions very rarely raise there tails.

    I always thought it was Moe that did the attacking???? What ever though, I still cant believe a chimp would rip your junk off......thats just mean. Take my nose, but hands off the wiener!


    I am going to the San Berdoo Mtns this weekend with a couple bannana, some twine, a cardboard box and a stick. My guess is we come home with a monkey this weekend.

    It could be a bobcat. They're apparently very hard to distinguish between lions.
