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

Hateful and stupid!
18 April 2003 | by (The Imperial Earth State) – See all my reviews

A look at the wonderful occupation of taking animals out of their natural habitat so that they could be imprisoned in cages in the abysmal zoos of the era for no other reason than personal profit. This was probably made to convince kids that doing his would be a great way to live "close to Nature."

Incidentally, only a total imbecile would wade around in a swamp like the Everglades in a pair of skimpy shorts. Considering the snakes, leeches and other things, this guy is asking for trouble.
