I was glad to hear that the recording is more than just a lion's roar - that might actually encourage people. It also said "Please stay off the lions. If not, the police will be called."

Those are very old and valuable statues by sculpture Edward Kemeys.

That's awesome. They should add some screaming and the sound of ripping flesh.

They should use hawks, perhaps the nocturnal version, to keep away the riff-raff

"Daddy, listen to it roar!"

They should heat it so that touching it burns people.

What do the neighbors think?

I'm glad I don't work anywhere in the vicinity of these lions. Can you imagine how many times a day this is set off?

"Please stay off the lions. You have 20 seconds to comply."

One of my fondest memories of my time living in Chicago was watching my son and a dozen other kids convert the Picasso in Daley Plaza into a playground slide. Somehow I think Pablo would have approved:

Chicago legend is that the lions will roar when a virgin passes by.

Nobody works anywhere in the vicinity except for a few merchants across a very busy street. Somehow I don't think the cashier at Garrett's Popcorn gives a damn.

My daughter and her boyfriend were just there yesterday seeing the Modern Wing. They didn't hear any roars, much to their chagrin.

I am going to the Chicago Art Institute on Sunday for the first time. Maybe I can trick my son into making the lions roar.

Just electrify them.

You just need a little courage, that's all!

If my estimations are correct, they should be very close to Lower Wacker Drive.

Why don't they just ask the guy to stop, subby?

There are pictures of 13 year-old me on those things. I think roaring would not have bothered me much.

lol, reminds me of the speed monitoring signs that flash a light if you are going too fast.

/weeee! I win!

They should make the lion pee on them.
