THE SAVAGE LION

Two hundred ninety-nine years ago on (perhaps) this day, the first African lion in America went on exhibit at the home of Captain Arthur Savage on Brattle Street in Boston.  I have no idea why Savage, a sea captain, had a lion or where he had gotten it but there it was.  It would be five more years before another exotic animal, this time a camel, was exhibited in America.

About that date.  November 26 is the date most sources agree this event happened.  So why is the Boston News-Letter advertisement about the exhibit dated March 31, 1718?  Hmm.

Also, apologies for the title pun of this post.

Read about it here:
