Giant chicken alert!

Recently there was a story broadcast on national radio regarding a lion on the rampage through deepest darkest Essex. 

Seeing as the lion is not native to the British Isles, a massive operation was set in motion involving armed officers and two police helicopters using heat-seeking equipment and nearby caravanners were evacuated for safety.

Turned out the savage beast was a fluffy tomcat called Teddy Bear.
The wife of the man who reported the sighting quietly admitted that the cat was "quite far away".

A case of mistaken perspective...
