California Living Museum plans to build mountain lion, bob cat exhibit

Posted 11/21/06

BAKERSFIELD – Some big cats will soon have a $1 million place to call home in Bakersfield.

CALM, or the California Living Museum announced its plans to build a mountain lion and bob cat exhibit.

The plans for the exhibit were unveiled Tuesday morning.

During the announcements, some mountain lion cubs were on hand to show members of the community what types of animals will one day call CALM home.

The project has been in the works for more than 23 years.

“When CALM first opened 23 years ago, [it] started with mountain lion exhibit, but the closure didn’t really do the animal justice … so it’s been talked about for 23 years,” said CALM secretary John Lindsey.

CALM hopes to start building in the spring and would take two years to complete.

The estimated cost of the exhibit is more than $1 million and donations are still needed.
