Police ask students not to park behind lion habitat

UNA police are asking students, faculty and staff to not park in the parking lot behind the George H. Carroll Lion Habitat near campus.

UNA police Chief Bob Pastula said today that students, faculty and staff are parking in the lot that is not owned by the university. The owner of the lot is threatening to put up a fence that would block access to the lion habitat, hindering the ability of the lion handlers to properly transport the lions around the community, Pastula said.

The lot’s owner will tow anyone who parks there without permission, Pastula said.

For more information on parking on campus, contact the UNA Police Department at 256-765-HELP.
