He’s British, of Course Starting Location
Starting in Chapter 3, Arthur can find a crashed caravan of circus-members in the state of Lemoyne. There is a lost sad man sitting around. He says that he is a female animal wrestler by the name of Margaret and his beasts escaped. Without any animals, his show is no longer a show and he asks us to find his lost Zebra, Tiger and Lion. Those should be easy to spot in these regions.
The Zebra is thought to be a bit to the north-west. It can be seen from afar, grazing under a tree. If you look through your binoculars and study it, Arthur will see that it is just a Mule painted like a Zebra.
Grab your Lasso and capture the not-so-exotic animal. Lead it back to the caravan and ask Margaret what the hell is going on. A man pretending to be a woman with a Mule “pretending” to be a Zebra. Weird.
Despite all the confusion, Arthur agrees to look out for the other creatures, whatever they might be. Margaret says that his assistant is also out looking for them and we should meet up with her.
After a short chat with her, we are supposed to track down the lion. Press + to highlight the trace in your surroundings and follow it. You will eventually find the dead animal on the ground. It’s just a Labrador with a Mane. Damn you, Margaret!
Pick up the dog and throw it back into the caged wagon. This might attract the missing Tiger, or whatever animal it really is. Shortly after placing it and getting into cover a real wildcat will come and climb into the wagon. It is a Cougar with painted stripes on it. Another fake, but closer to being what it’s supposed to be. Close the cage-doors and drive to the rest of the caravan.
Margaret has another favor to ask. Due to the shortness of Lions in his/her portfolio, he/she asks us to look for the remaining one. Shouldn’t be too exciting, I suppose. Once at the location, Arthur will spot some farmers locking the barn door in fear. Arthur will request entrance to look for probably another sorry dressed-up creature. Once inside, we hear some noise above us. Seems like the animal just escaped the barn.
Once you are back outside, we will see a bloody corpse on the ground, followed by a dead horse not too far away. That couldn’t be a dressed Labrador. Head over to the stables marked below. Surprisingly, there is actually a real lion in there, which will instantly attack you. Use the Dead Eye to place a few rounds on its head to take it down.
