Bali: New Hands at Bali Safari and Marine Park
Big cats featured on The Lion Man hit TV show are suffering after having their paws ‘mutilated’ so they could perform with their handlers, says the wildlife park troubleshooter now overseeing the animals’ welfare.
Some 29 of the 37 lions and tigers at Zion Wildlife Gardens have been declawed – a practice condemned as ‘barbaric’ by consultant Tim Husband, hired after the fatal mauling of Zion ranger Dalu Mncube in May.

LION KING - Courier Mail
Staff, locals and the media hailed the head curator a hero after he boldly confronted Goldie nine days ago, coaxing the lion back through a hole that had been accidentally gouged open by a steel-bladed brushcutter.
Zoo owner Udo Jattke said Mr Husband was one of the reasons he bought the failed Mareeba Wild Animal Park, which had closed in 2004 owing about $3 million.
"He's a can-do person, a champion guy," Mr Jattke said.
The park's consultant vet Annabelle Olsson said the zookeeper had achieved astonishing results, and his greatest asset was an ability to "put himself in the animals' shoes"
