Pat has lions on the back wall of the Big Stage Arena, when we were World Jungle Compound. The set-up was known as a death trap. If cats got a man down back at that wall, there was obviously no way to help him from the outside. A rescuer had to enter the cage, and that could not always be counted on, unless Benny Bennett was there. This wall opened up in the middle to allow for changes of props. In time, Chet Juszyk installed barred arena sections inside, a distance from the wall, giving outside attendants room to work their prod poled when needed.
