Odds and Ends
Zoo must be confusing

I can well believe someone saw a boar, only like you say, it cannot be the animal in the picture of the alleged lionness I saw — proportions and colour totally wrong. (There are lots of wild boar in that area; I have heard reports from friends how the boar uprooted everything in their gardens again and again.) The picture I saw *would* fit a lionness, but was too unclear to be sure.
I could imagine someone illegally had a lionness as a "pet" that broke free. They will of course not out themselves as having that animal missing.
