Leo the MGM Lion was a popular cat. If you were alive in the 1920s or 1930s,
you might have seen Leo at a movie premier, or riding in an airplane or on a
boat, or performing any one of dozens of other publicity stunts for
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. He could be seen all over the country -- sometimes at
the same time!

How was that possible? Leo was more than one lion. MGM sometimes deputized
alternate versions of the famous beast, generic felines borrowed from local
zoos and renamed temporarily for public events.

All of the Leos are long dead and buried. But one of them -- no one's quite
sure which one -- had his skin removed in Los Angeles and made into a rug.
That rug WAS on display at the McPherson Museum in the center of Kansas, but
Leo was taken off exhibit for restoration in 2014 and did not return, and
that fact makes this CRAP .
