Newly born lion cub named after the Patriarch Kirill
Interfax-religion.com reports that a Lion cub born in the Safari zoo circus in Pyatigorsk will be named "Kirill," after the newly enthroned Russian Patriarch.
“We hurried to name a cub after him – Kirill (or Kira if it turns out to be a girl,)” head of the Moscow travelling circus, which is now on tour in the Caucasus, Gamlet Kasyan was quoted as saying by the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily."
Anyone in favor of starting a petition to get a lion cub in Kerala named "Didymos?"
