Lemur Out And About


"A lemur, which potentially escaped from a nearby home, attacked a 21-year-old woman in Florida as she was leaving her home."

It's the prose that bothers me here. "Which potentially escaped"? Wouldn't a normal speaker of English have written "which may have escaped"?

Actually, it's not just the prose that bothers me. It's also the scary prospect of a potential lemur attack.

What would I do if a lemur
chomped down on my femur?
