Walking Cage Protects Lion-Farm Guards (Jul, 1939)

Walking Cage Protects Lion-Farm Guards

It looks as though the lion were the keeper, and the man the caged animal, in the photograph above, but the scene was really snapped on the world’s only commercial lion farm, at El Monte, Calif., to picture the mobile cage designed to protect trainers who may have to track down and kill any untamable beast that escapes from the confines of its pen. The floorless, three-wheeled cage has heavy wire protective netting mounted over a strong wood frame, with a gun slot to permit firing in any direction.
