Dog in court :

    Police demanded severe action against the dog for biting people. Its owner says it has only attacked burglars..."


Python :

Pepe the hippo :

Caiman in Kent (and wild animals) :

  • Crocodile living in Kent
    "A caiman is just one of the dangerous animals Britons keep as pets...
    Caesar the spectacled caiman crocodile, who lives with his owner in a converted bungalow in Kent, is one of dozens of alligators and crocodiles kept as licenced pets, according to a Sunday Telegraph study.
    More than 4,000 animals are licenced under the Dangerous Wild Animals Act (DWAA), which imposes strict security rules on owners to prevent escapes."




Moles :

    "It was in Hampton Court Park, on the north side of the River by Raven's Eyott, that King William III's horse (Sorrel) stumbled over a mole hill and threw the unfortunate and unpopular Monarch to his death in 1702. Thereafter, the Jacobites - supporters of James II, who was deposed by William III - would toast the health of 'the little gentleman in black velvet'."
