Police stand at Earls Hall Farm in St Osyth, southern England where a lion was apparently seen Monday Aug. 27, 2012. Outside the idyllic English village of St. Osyth, police are hunting a lion. A small army of officers and tranquilizer-toting zoo experts, along with a pair of heat-seeking helicopters, are spending their Monday combing the woods, ponds, and farmland around the coastal community after a resident spotted what was believed to be a lion lounging in a field of grass. Where such a beast may have come from is anyone's guess; the local zoo says its animals are accounted for, and police have said a local circus isn't missing any either.
