Randy, you must have been at the park in 1979 when the decision was made to replace the second lion section with animals from Australia. This was the section between the bird sanctuary and the tigers. Do you recall anything about that change over?

If I remember correctly it went 1st lions, black bears, 2nd lions, brown bears, bird sanctuary, Bengals, leopards, Siberians, sheep and goats, and my baboons. I don't remember where the Bengals were sent. I do remember some of their names- Reverend Peewee Bones and Stalker. I recall the section was hard to see the roos in in the beginning. David Barnes and Charlie Hull were in charge of the change over. Seems to me it was later in the season.
