Kenenisa's Lioness Sighting

If you missed this bit about Kenenisa's encouter with a lioness at Entoto...


"When I was training up at the Entoto Hills with my brother Tariku, I swear that I saw a lioness and her cub about 100 metres away," he said on the official championship website.

"We stopped abruptly, let them quietly return to the forest, and then proceeded to turn away.

"I was scared a bit at the time. I had heard stories that a lioness would get angry if she thought anything would hurt her cub.

"When we asked shepherds whether lions existed in the area, they said the forests did not have any lions, only cheetahs. I still do not believe it. It was a lioness and her cub just like the ones I saw many times on television."


I am not sure what to make of this...what do you think?

He was looking at himself in the mirror and he is telling you not to mess with his little brother, or else...

Maybe it was Tirunesh the Lioness of Ethiopia.

But this is dangerous even if it were not a lion is was some wild animal why should some of runners face such risks?

I always dream of Lions chasing me at night. Or snakes, large snakes thousands of them on trees, roads everywhere... horrific.
Anyway Lions in Entoto is hard to believe. Lions are in the southern flats, not in a dump, cold place highland like Entoto. Also so close to north of Addis. What news it will be the Anbessa of Arsi eaten by a Anbessa in Entoto.
