As a young cub, Leo lived in a den in the North Shore mountains. His parents left Leo to fend for himself early in life so that he could develop the skills needed for survival. Before long, Leo was roaming the parks and fields of Vancouver. During one blissful summer day, he found himself on the practice field of the BC Lions Football Club. The players stopped what they were doing and approached this young, but full-sized feline. A relationship was struck and Leo the Lion was declared the official team mascot.

Leo has a great rapport with children, visiting with them regularly at home games and community events. Watch for Leo the Lion to appear at special events in your city!
