Another staple of the Las Vegas Strip went extinct yesterday, as the MGM Grand Lion Habitat closed for good.
The move wasn't a shock to the Vegas masses, as it was announced over a month ago that the family friendly Vegas attraction would be on the losing end of a hotel-wide, $160 million MGM Grand renovation.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, the lions will be moved to The Cat House, which is an outdoor ranch located outside of Vegas that is owned and operated by the MGM Lion Habitat designer, Keith Evans.
In the meantime, it's unclear what will become of the 5,000-sq. foot space, though Evans told the Las Vegas Sun that he hopes to open The Cat House to the public in the near future, permits pending.
