Lincoln Park Zoo cuts ribbon on new lion habitat

CHICAGO (WLS) — The Lincoln Park Zoo cut the ribbon on a new state-of-the-art lion habitat Thursday morning.

The newly-renovated “Pepper Family Wildlife Center” features an expanded habitat for a pride of four African lions, snow leopards, lynx, and red pandas.

The exhibit includes a savanna setting, trees, temperature-controlled areas and a zipline for feeding that will simulate prey.

Guests will also be able to see the lions both inside and outside of Kovler Lion House behind see-through walls.

During the construction, the lions were moved to the Rolling Hills Zoo in Kansas.
