Would this be the same Doug Ashton who clowned on Ringling in the early 1970's?
This was answered some time ago NO it is a very different fellow Chic
I talked to Capt.Schulz on several occasions, great man. Trained Lions and Elephants,mostly in Australia. Before he went to Australia he worked with Alfred Court and Hugo Smith and know just about everybody in the animal training business 50 years ago. He is almost 100 years old and still remembers everything, just a bit slow walking around.
Buckles,I sure hope we look this good in 20some years.Bob Kitto
in 1986 capt schulz was with our show for about 6 months broke in his last lion act for Frank Gasser that we purchased from Frank Gasserpeople who seen it say it was one of his best. I have fond memoriesof capt in Sydney it was Raining cats & dogs and here was capt out in the Rain fixing the shutterson the cage that had been damagedby a truck so the cats would not get wet great Man Robert Perry Australia
