I can't tell you how rare and exciting this is...if it is true. True enough that we have seen it. It is here. The provenence of it's origin is the issue. Is it an escapee from a zoo or a private collection? It has no tags, bands etc that are visible. It has been debated and investigated adnausium. No one can prove it was an escapee. I am just thrilled to have seen this beautiful creature in the wild. I think it is a great wanderer.
I have some reeallllly bad photos of it. You can go here to see a decent picture of it when it was in TN. I am sure that someone with great camera gear will take a photo of it here this weekend, if it stays. There have already been people from surrounding states coming to see it.
I hope you have an exciting weekend too.
