In Whangarei, on Northland, we meet New Zealand's 'Lion man', Utah-raised farm-boy Craig Busch, an experienced self-taught cat wild 'trainer'. He runs the Zion Wildlife Gardens with his wife Karen. The large safari park-type private zoo is devoted to wild felines, with twelve lions and six tigers, notably the nearly extinct Barbary lions (North African), starring male zoo mascot Zion, and five white Bengal tigers. His dream is to add the rare African white lion to this collection. Other species include serval cats, deer and a rascal baboon, Foxy. Today is memorable: the first new Zealand birth of a Bengal cub; he's ten days early, but Craig manages to get mother Shikana (both have orange fur, but carry white genes) to suckle.moreless
