Cly­de beatty, a guy who trained wild lions and tigers:
(The pho­to speaks for it’s self) Cly­de Beatty (June 10, 1903 – July 19, 1965) joined the cir­cus as a cage clean­er as a teen and became fam­ous as a lion tamer and anim­al train­er. He also became a cir­cusim­pres­ario who owned his own show that later merged with the Cole Bros. Cir­cus to form the Cly­de Beatty-Cole Bros. Cir­cus. Cly­de Beatty He still holds the record for hav­ing mixed 40 wild bred lions and tigers in one cage arena.

Google When you think of tigers, you imme­di­ately think of Rocky, eye of the tiger, or more youth­ful people, Katty perrys ver­sion. If you think of lions you think of the block buster hit the Ghost in the dark­ness, or if you are a bit young­er and rated G, Disney’s lion king. But here’s a man that actu­ally knows the beast first hand, when you think cir­cuses, you think lions and tigers who obey orders like a dog and jump through hoops, but Cly­de Beatty insisted in work­ing major­ity of his acts with untamed wild bred anim­als, and his sold pur­pose was to put on a show by sur­viv­ing an onslaught of anim­als and try to make them form a pyr­am­id of sub­mis­sion. http://www.itnsource.com/en/shotlist…clyde%20beatty (Excerpt) Cly­de Beatty is not only an enter­tain­er, he is also a sci­ent­ist, a com­pet­ent zoolo­gist, an explorer and an adven­turer. Brav­ing Afric­an, Indi­an and Malay­an jungles; brav­ing fever, dis­ease and even death, the anim­al train­er, — along with sci­ent­ist and explorers en- gaged in research, — helps to broaden sci­ence fron­ti­ers in the dark lands””.
https://archive.org/stream/selwynhou8selw_djvu.txt At the end of his career, he was noted to have trained more lions and tigers than any before him or after, Beatty worked 2,000 lions and tigers in his 40 years of being the worlds greatest show­men:

Sev­en 1 CLYDE BEATTY AND HIS ANIMALS HERE THURSDAY Cly­de Beatty and his lions and tigers. Beatty Is the most talked of anim­al train­er In the world and presents with his own cir­cus one of the greatest col­lec­tions of wild beasts ever assembled. Few who see wild anim­als In cages real­ize the vast amount of , danger and expense neces- to get them there. The greatest danger lies In cap­tur­ing the wild anim­als in their nat­ive coun­try. With Cole Broth­ers-Cly­de Beatty cir­cus, which will give two per­form­ances in Emporia Thursday on the Katy grounds, there are sev­er­al hun­dred wild anim­als, most of which were cap­tured in the forests and jungles of their nat­ive coun­try. ““There is no more tick­lish or dan­ger­ous task than track­ing lions in she vast Nubi­an deserts,”” said Beatty. ““The scorch­ing sun pours down with such for­ce that few men can stand it. The effect on the eyes is blind­ing. There Is little or no shade. The war­iest and most care­ful hunter may be track­ing an anim­al and at the same time be tracked by the anim­al he is seek­ing. which may spring on him at any moment.”“For cap­tur­ing full-grown lions, large traps of vari­ous forms are used. One trap Is square, one of the sides lift­ing upon a spring like the old-fash­ioned mouse trap. The trap Is baited with a piece of fresh meat and as soon as the lion has entered the trap the door shuts down and he Is a pris­on­er. https://www.newspapers.com/newsp

In 1928 at Koko­mo a female tiger landed on top of him only to be killed by a lion in an ensu­ing 25-minute fight that saved Beatty’s life. In 1932 he was ser­i­ously wounded when mauled by one of his most power­ful lions and for a time lay near death with a fever that peaked at 106 degrees. H (Bot­tom of the page)
