Charles Gay and Pluto, Gay's Lion Farm, El Monte, Calif.

Charles Gay and Pluto, Gay's Lion Farm, El Monte, Calif.

Gay's Lion Farm was a tourist attraction and a lion breeding facility just west of the south-east junction of Peck Road and Valley Boulevard in El Monte, California. It operated from 1925 through 1942, when it was closed temporarily due to wartime meat shortages. It was never reopened.

At one time, the farm housed the MGM Lion and several lions used in Tarzan movies.

The owners, Charles and Muriel Gay were former circus performers.
