Behind Chet in this shot, to the Left and partially obscured, is the Compound's top cat man, Charles Alexander Bennett, our Uncle Ben. He went out for years with the Thousand Oaks cat acts, including tours with Pat Anthony. Chet took out 9 lionesses for several big dates, some of them seen here. As some may recall, Chet became Head Trainer in the World Jungle Compound/Jungleland years.
