Jungleland Car Stuart Rafael 1024x756 Parades Parades Parades  If there was a parade somewhere you could bet Jungleland was in it. It was great advertisement for the compound. Yes, it is true Jungleland had M-G-M Leo. There were three different lions used for the logo throughout the years of M-G-M: Barnie, Toni, and Leo. Mel Koontz was the trainer for the two latter lions. Leos real name was Major he was also called Rusty.

All was successful at Jungleland…. UNTIL… The rest of the story comes now.
