I just stumbled across this news story about long-planned renovations beginning at MGM Grand, and saw this little tidbit:
Quote:

Last month, the live lion habitat in the casino was closed.


I hadn't heard about this and was pretty bummed. I'm a cat person and have 2 cats of my own (not the big variety, of course), and always enjoyed swinging by to see the giant kitties at MGM. Oh well.

Sounds permanent.

I read through the other threads in this section and see that it was already mentioned back in January.

Sorry if it was old news already, I just started posting here about a month ago.

News to me. I didn't catch it. I saw the lions back in December 2011. I actually think they belong in a different habitat and not in a casino....

You're stealing bandwidth from the Spanish word of the day!

I had not seen this item before, so it's news to me.

I vaguely recall reasing about at LV Advisor.

There are stills ome big cats at Sigfried and Toy's prop warehouse, or secret garden, or something ;)

If that's still around, of course.

Better story here.

The precis: Habitat is closed permamently. Twenty lions rotated in and out of the exhibit. The source of the lions is "The Cat House", an 8.5 acre ranch outside of Las Vegas where they live with trainer and habitat designer Keith Evans. He cares for 40 lions that have appeared at the hotel at some point in their lives. The lion has been a part of MGM痴 brand for decades, and Evans lions are reportedly descendants of Leo, the most recent lion mascot used by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios. Evans will need to lay off employees as there is no longer a need to transport lions to and from the MGM from the ranch.

This space, along with the old Studio 54 space is being used for a bigger club...just what Vegas needs!
