Hehe! Well according to Wikipedia, because of meat rationing during WWII, it was impossible to get the ton of horse meat required to feed the lions daily, so the lions were loaned to zoos around the country. After the War ended, Charles Gay (founder of the lion farm along with his brother Muriel Gay) was too ill to reclaim the lions, and he retired to Balboa Island in Newport Beach-- oooh, according to Wikipedia he's buried in San Gabriel Cemetery. That's not far from where I live... hmm...
