    I was in Mobile, Al over the weekend and heard of a funny narcotics raid.

    My great nephew is on the police force of a small town close to Mobile. Magazine Point is also close to Mobile, and it was Magazine Point where they went to serve a Narcotics warrant. He and about six other guys in the cool black suits were on the raid. He and a guy with the slam hammer went to the front and the other guys went around to the rear. The people in the house had put up a hollow core door at the front, and when the guy hit it with the battering ram it went clean through the door, making a foot diameter hole. The hammer man looked through the hole and saw an old lady walking toward the door and he yelled at her through the hole to unlock the damned door. she did, and told my nephew to warn the guy going around back to be careful cause there was a lion in the back yard.

    He left the hammer man to watch the front of the house and he ran around back, just in time to see six guys in SWAT uniforms trying to come through a one man gate and squealing like little girls. When he got to where he could see he saw a lion, a female African lion. hard wired to an iron post with a three foot chain, no water, and about to starve.

    He had two dozen cheeseburgers with him and gave the car water and started feeding her burgers. By the time he was finished the cat was laying her head on his shoulder and purring like an overgrown house cat.

    Why did he have 24 cheeseburgers with him?

    Why did the caR need water? Radiator leak?

    When I was a kid there was a home on a wooded lot off a rural road about 5 miles from my small neighborhood. A friend and I rode our bikes by the place almost daily in summer on our way to a state park where we swam.

    Often as we passed on a summer morning we would hear lions roaring.
    As you passed you could just see a large chain-link-fence enclosure behind the house.
    I once saw three lions in the enclosure through the trees back about 50 yards from the road.

    Word was the owner was a retired circus animal-handler.

    I changed car water to cat water. He wasn't carrying the burgers on his person. I guess they were to be lunch when they were finished.

    I wasn't there and I think it was funny as hell.

    You guys don't cut anyone much typo slack, do you?

    You know a crazy story like that didn't happen without being documented. I would like to see a news article or official report just to get the story cleared up. I don't doubt you because its too crazy not to be true. What ended up happening with the drug raid and why was there a lion in the back yard?

    If it was a warrant service more then likely they had multiples to hit and they had their lunch with them or they had sent someone to get food after they secured the area.

    Just North of where I grew up (@ 5 miles) there was a LION. The vet said it was great to check on lion and then go place with "bad dogs" The dogs would RUN from smell :) :)

    He took them to fairs as well.

    @ 6 yrs ago I was at a place that had a mountain lion IN THE HOUSE. It was kinda neat... But not for me.

    I don't know about the burgers. I assumed they already had them, maybe not. Maybe someone went after them. We were all sitting around shooting the bull with people we hadn't seen in too many years and that was one of the stories. Since it seems to be important I'll call him tonight and find out.

    I bet if it was a wolf, they would've shot it.
