Storyline

New Zealand's 'Lion man', Utah-raised farm-boy Craig Busch, an experienced self-taught cat wild 'trainer', runs the Zion Wildlife Gardens in Whangarei, on Northland. The large safari park-type private zoo is devoted to wild felines, notably the nearly extinct Barbary lions (North African), starring male zoo mascot Zion, and rare white Bengal tigers. Other species include serval cats, deer and a rascal baboon, Foxy. His dream is to add the rare African white lion to this collection. It comes within reaches by exchange for some of the cubs he lovingly and successfully raises, largely by hand. Partially to this end, Craig also visits parks on other continents. meanwhile his own infrastructure must be extended, managed and served with PR. Written by KGF Vissers
