ironically ,April 1st
Maude the Tigon Her father was a tiger. Her mother was a lion.
She lived in Belle Vue Zoo between 1936-1949.
When she died her skin was preserved & given to Manchester Museum.They kept it hidden in a drawer for 50+ years.
In 2015 a local taxidermist mounted what she left them......dear Maude is now on display. (trust me,she looks happy enough,but her eyes sure do follow you around the room....!)
Me & Cath went into Manchester today. Here are some photo i took........
Me Cath & Chris have lived in the same house in Hebden Bridge for 30+ years.This year we leave it.No doubt this will be a theme as the weeks & months unfurl..Stay Tuned Folks!
