Painting of lioness attack in Wiltshire is auctioned

The oil painting, a 19th century copy of a James Pollard work, shows the beast attacking the Exeter Mail Coach on 20 October, 1816, near Salisbury.
The lioness had escaped from a travelling menagerie and as the coach drew up at a coaching inn in Winterslow it attacked the lead horse.
