GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) -- The big cats at Lee Richardson Zoo in Garden City will officially move into their new, $1 million home this weekend.

The zoo is set to open its Cat Canyon with a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration Sunday afternoon.

The Garden City Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/18df7sm ) the exhibit provides a larger, more natural habitat for three jaguars, three bobcats and a new mountain lion. It features glass viewing windows for the public. And heated rocks will draw the cats close to the glass so visitors can get a close look at the animals.

The new mountain lion, Peyton, recently arrived at the zoo from Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita.

Zoo executive director Kathy Sexson, says the cats have been visiting the exhibit recently to get comfortable with their new home.
