The Monkey and the Tiger
Menageries, Monstrosities, Animal Behaviour, Government, Politics
Reports an apparent fulfilment of François M A Voltaire's 'animal combination' of the 'Monkey and the Tiger'—a story about a monkey at Wombwell's Menagerie which, escaping from chastisement by a keeper, was eaten by a tiger. Thinks the resulting monster 'Monkey-Tiger' or 'Tiger-Monkey' would, if trained to walk on its hind legs, 'pass in certain circles for a great practical statesman'.
