Old jail lions guarding fraternity house in Reno

 Local resident Terry Egland was in Reno recently and shot these pictures of the old lions that once stood guard outside the Kern County Jail. After the jail was demolished because of structural damage in the 1951 earthquake the lions were taken to the University of Nevada-Reno to stand guard in front of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house.

A little, uh, out-of-scale, and I hate to think of the things they must witness and indignities that are undoubtedly heaped upon them after dark (I base this partly on the behavior of SAE brothers I knew at Fresno State back in the day), but it's good to know they're still around.
