Have you been to church?: An escaped zoo lioness (not this one) rode out the brunt of Hurricane Ike with a bunch of humans in a little island church off the coast of Texas this past weekend.

I seem to be on a religious kick this week, but here's a link to a cool story and photo about an unusual occurance when Hurricane Ike struck Texas this past weekend. An evacuee driving in his truck passed an escaped lioness from the zoo and put it in the back of his truck. They ended up riding out the storm with a bunch of other people in a church. The locked the lion in the sanctuary (it slept on the altar area) while the humans took refuge in another part of the church. From all accounts, the lioness was very well behaved during her time in the church.

So... How exactly did some random dude get a lioness into his truck? And then into the church.

I'm not sure I understand lions. Or people.

Look! Another lion in a church (yard)!

Your blog is incorrect. The lioness had not escaped. She was with her rightful owner, who also owned the zoo.
