Located at the Kansas City Zoo, this working drinking fountain is decicated to Harry Evans Minty, who was a respected member of the Park Board in the 1940s.  The fountain features the bronze likeness of a lion cub.  The lion cub's likeness was based on "Tyke", one of Mr. Minty's favorites at the Zoo.


The sculpture and fountain were originally located near the African Veldt section of the zoo but is now situated on the Tiger Trail near the Red Panda exhibit.
