Escaped Lion Shot at Rycroft

This month, Country Roads heads north to Rycroft for a sad story about a lion which escaped from a circus.  While the lion did seem to have a bad attitude, he was likely confused and scared, much as the people trying to recapture him were.  The incident took place early in the morning, so there were not many people about.  Thanks to Bill Scott for sending me the article from the July 27, 1950 paper.
