Pope Benedict Tames The Wild Beast- Pics From Wednesday Audience

Yes the Circus literally came to the Vatican today

VATICAN CITY, Jan. 28 (AP) – Pope Benedict XVI was greeted by an unusual guest during his weekly audience at the Vatican: a feisty lion cub. The beast was brought to the Pontiff in the Vatican's Paul VI hall on Wednesday as part of a performance by members of the Medrano Circus. An amused Benedict looked on as jugglers in sparkling costumes performed. He got up when the lion cub was carried closer so he could pat it. The lion's response: a roar, which drew laughter from the Vatican audience.
