• Short Summary

    A lamb and a lion pose for the Colour Pic cameras - rather reluctantly!

  • Description

    Ilfracombe, Devon.

    Several shots show a lamb and a lion cub in an enclosure at Ilfracombe Zoo; they are seen separately, then together, as the cub sits with his paws resting on the sitting lamb (the cub looks rather fierce!). Other animals seen briefly in cutaways are a llama, a sea lion, lions in a cage and an ostrich.

    Note: correspondence on file between Pathe and the zoo owner, Charles Trevisick, suggest this was the second attempt by Pathe to film the lion and lamb together; on the first attempt the animals "decided not to co-operate"! There is also a news article from the Daily Sketch showing a lion and lamb together. Mute neg is missing for this issue.
