A Month’s-End Associated Press (AP) Photographic Celebration Of: LION

by
in Hmm Weekly
on March 31, 2021

Here we are in the last hours of a good solid 31-day month, and that means The Brick House’s monthly allotment of Associated Press photos is about to expire. If we don’t use up our images, they don’t roll over to the next month, and that’s a waste of good Associated Press imagery and The Brick House’s fiat currency.

Hmm Weekly has been placed in charge of burning our unused subscription photos, and in honor of the out-like a-LAMB month, we invite you to please enjoy this presentation of: LION.

The Hmm Weekly Image Download Day is also a reminder that The Brick House Cooperative spends money to bring you the best (or, in this case, the most, every damn drop of) online content we can. Please support us through our ongoing subscription drive or go ahead and make a donation, thank you very much.

This photo provided by the National Park Service shows a mountain LION known as P-61, captured in the Santa Monica Mountains, Calif., Oct. 2017. Officials say for the first time during a 17-year study of mountain LIONs, one of the big cats has been documented crossing Interstate 405 at Sepulveda Pass in Los Angeles. The National Park Service says P-61 navigated his way across the massive freeway between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. on July 19, 2019, a rare feat. In the same area where P-61 crossed, the mountain LION P-18 was hit and killed by a vehicle in 2011. A study shows California’s stay-at-home order in response to the coronavirus outbreak seems to have saved some wildlife, as decreased traffic has resulted in fewer collisions with mountain LIONs, deer, and other large animals.

Two world renowned man-eating Tsavo LIONs are seen stuffed and on display at Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History Monday, Nov. 2, 2009.

Their killing spree inspired the 1996 movie “The Ghost and the Darkness.”
