    Photographer Joseph Scherschel took this photo of Blondie the pet lion for Life Magazine in 1955. Blondie was indeed a family pet, belonging to Mr. Charles Hipp of Texas. Mr. Hipp bought the lion from the Dallas zoo in 1953 when she was a 12-week-old cub. She never caused a problem. Blondie died of old age in 1968, a beloved member of the family.
