I think I've spotted a worrying trend developing:
BBC: Lion attacks on rise in Tanzania
An increase in lion attacks in rural Tanzania threatens both local people and lion conservation efforts, scientists report today in Nature.
BBC: Confused lions 'hunt' small cars
Small cars driving through a safari park in Merseyside have been chased by confused lions who think they are prey.
This thing has conspiracy written all over it.
I hope none of you was thinking of making some pathetic comment about the Scouse lions' being after the cars' hub caps.
We don't like Scouse stereotypes at Gruts.
Actually, come to think of it, the first (and last) time I was driven through Knowsley Safari Park, it was in my dad's old Singer Gazelle. Talk about tempting fate.
Good job it wasn't a Chevrolet Impala........next!
While in Tanzania, we saw a lion chase a man on a bicycle...but the punchline was too obvious to include here!
