Understand Falkor - you do a great job and the RWSP was a part of growing up for a lot of us. Maybe a wee update from me in New Zealand might be of interest? I am currently fighting the battle to return Craig Busch, The Lionman, back to his park. He has been the victim of an incredible slur campaign with the help of Government Ministries (MAF and Dept of Labour), the press due to one of his antagonists, a media guru, who is trying to gain control of his park having (shall we say) forgotten to pay him $$million+ on royalties and spin offs. Some don't like his style (many didn't like Stevo Irwin, but he was a great bloke and did more for conservation than some of these stuffy bloody zoos) but Craig has a following and a role to play. I hate injustice and that is what has happened to him and, when the battle is won, the Park, Zion Wildlife Gardens, will be the same sort of place as Windsor: real animal people, real animals, making a real difference and having a real load of fun doing it! Anyway, that's my news - a long bloody struggle ahead but will win through!
The sort of spirit that keeps me fighting for this sort of thing I think is the same sort of spirit that was with us all; in the reserves, the stable blocks, and the caravans if you got real lucky!
I have to earn a living while I do this so have my own website - www.leopardrock.co.nz
- drop by sometime and say "Hi!"
Raising a crappy but welcome Kiwi Beer to the Gold Mine and saying, "Cheers!" This is Caddy signing off for now.
