Animal: Unusual: Cute: Lion cub at Public House. Regulars at a quiet country pub in

Animal: Unusual: Cute: Lion cub at Public House. Regulars at a quiet country pub in remotest North Wales face an unusual challenge at closing time. For the pub, the lion Inn, at Gwytherin, Denbighshire rings a bell at "Drinking up" time, - and the bell advances down the bar counter clutched firmly in the teeth of Sheba, a real life lioness. Sheba is the unusual pet of the Inn's licenses Bob Hughes. After a succession of pets - ranging from badgers to budgies, Bob, 42, his wife Anna, 29 and their children Victoria, 7, and Brian, 6, decided they should have a pet more inn-keeping - namely a lion! However, this presented certain problems, so the Hughes family finally acquired Sheba, a nine week old lioness, at a cost of £300, from a Lancashire zoo supplier. Sheba has settled down well with the family's two Labradors, Bruce and Lady, as well as the Lion Inn's customers. Commented Bob: "The locals are all thrilled with Sheba, but I fancy the farmers will be counting their sheep more often - although Sheba only eats beef!" Sheba, who was born in an English national park, lives mainly on baby food and a pound of beef a day. But after a year her diet will increase to a somewhat costly fifteen pounds of beef daily.
