With his faithful Indian sidekick, a so-called nature-lover trees a bobcat, bags rattlesnakes, and ties up two bear cubs. What a man!

Not very politically correct....
22 January 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

This is a short film that definitely doesn't stand up to the test of time. I'm sure it was pretty exciting when it was first released in 1950. These days, it's seen as a man raping the environment. Ross goes around and catches some animals in the Florida everglades. The narrator's pretty obscenely cheerful as well.
