Descripción Doubleday and Co., 1965. Hardcover. Condición: Very Good. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Very Good. 1st Edition. Few who see wild animals In cages realize the vast amount of , danger and expense to get them there. The greatest danger lies In capturing the wild animals in their native country. In his book, Beatty, with the help of writer Edward Anthony, deftly reveals his exploits and close calls with his jungle-bred charges. Beatty chose to work only with cats born in the wild as opposed to those raised in captivity because the latter can become somewhat domesticated and docile – to a point. He is quick to emphasize the inevitable natural instincts of all cats which lurk just below the surface, and, when not quickly recognized by a trainer, can result in injury or death. Beatty once had trouble with a tiger-killing lion "Caesar", one of the wild animals that was then featured in his act at the circus. Dust jacket with some edge-wear and browning.
