French Kittens in Lyon

Giant marauding kittens in Lyon?

Makes me wonder what others cities/sites are overrun with the local animals. There are many, many cats scurrying around the Parthenon in Athens, monkeys cavorting among select ruins in India, multiple llamas and alpacas wandering around Machu Picchu at least when I was there. I suppose we could include the pigeons in Trafalgar Square, although that might be stretching it a bit.

Can anybody else think of any animal overrun tourist sites or cities not mentioned above?


  1. the Monkey Temple in Katmandu. Those monkeys were SCARY!! They circled around us and decided that Maryn was the best target to steal food from. Oh man, we gave them whatever we had to eat. and were thankful to still have our digits!

  2. The Barbary apes in Gibraltar. I believe they can be quite a nuisance.
