Roger Smith said...

When starting with cats at age 17, I ran with a very secretive cadre of wild guys also beginning with exotic stock. We had to make our own way around small, roadside animal collections, and find guys like us who let us take our first chances. I went for the cats, others were reptile boys. I had a saying: "It's OK, me working these lions, but a snake'll hurt you." I was the first casualty, getting torn up by a big male lion. It was years before one of our gang got snake-bit. He survived, but we both learned what would hurt us.
