A Hungry Lion or a Dwindling Assortment of Animals Synopsis

There once was a hungry lion, a penguin (Well he was just here...), a little calico kitten (I could have sworn I just saw him...), a brown mouse (Now wait a second...), a bunny with floppy ears and a bunny with un-floppy ears (Okay this is just getting ridiculous), a frog, a bat, a pig, a slightly bigger pig, a wooly sheep, a koala, a hen, and also a turtle. Hey!

What's going on here...The very hungry lion is all set to enjoy an exciting day with his other animal pals. But all of a sudden his friends start disappearing at an alarming rate! Is someone stealing the hungry lion's friends, or is the culprit a little...closer to home?
