throw him to the christians…

Dear diablog,

At a recent Club 96 car meet a geezer unknown to me turned up in

DSC06781 - Copy

a fairly uninspiring Bentley – little did I know!

As a clue here is a much earlier pic of him (1966 I think)


When he became famous (notorious?) for a visit to the then existent ‘Animal Department’ at





which probably was as lush as this


where he bought a lion cub which he christened ‘Christian’.

Rather than waste space with the whole story I thought you may like to try this  and have a gander (which he had probably eaten!) at


Incredible and a sign of the times. Personally I think it a wonderful story which may be worth getting as a Christmas present for someone


Long live the ‘left fielders’ – anyone who is prepared to be different in this appalling world of PC, Animal Rights and god knows what other poxy pressure group gets my vote.

Yours, diablog, roarin’

  1. Very nice blog Glynsky, you have a heart after all.
    What wonderful creatures lions are and to be able to see them in their environment is something you’ll never forget.

  2. They revisted him in Africa a while back and he recognised them. There was a very moving program on the TV about this and the original “setting him free” there. Brilliant that they took it on themselves to do this.

  3. Dear ER, I am not psychic, just that my Big Brother and I hacked into your computer. Interesting reading and funny.
