|There were unusual urban wildlife sightings in Philadelphia today during a traditional Chinese celebration of lunar new year. It's the Year of the Pig!
|There were lots of lions.
|And lots of pigs.
|Click to enlarge.
|The lions stopped at stores and restaurants and danced to accompaniment of drums, cymbals, and firecrackers.
|Here's a little one coming out of a store.
|Apparently lions can be attracted with lettuce.
|You can dangle from a ladder.
|Or do it like this.
|There were other unusual things out there today, too.
|And so many firecrackers that the sidewalks were smoking.
|It was a great celebration and a good time was had by all. Happy Year of the Pig!
