What is the most badass thing anyone has ever done?
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””.

On another occasion there was a pitched battle between seventeen lions and twelve tigers. Three tigers were killed in this fight and some of the lions badly mauled.””

He tells of one huge lion, named Caesar, who, from his position at the top of a pyramid formed in the act by the caged cats, twice sprang upon tigers, killing each one almost instantly.

Duke whips all of clydes tigers:
A few years ago when Clyde was breaking in a new group of lions, and was hard at work on a barrel rolling lion, one of the tigers leaped from his high pedestal onto Beatty’s back. The trainer was knocked across the arena, and, as he fell, the tiger shifted his attack, sinking his teeth into Beatty’s arm. Then it was that Louie went into action.’ He leaped from his pedestal onto the attacking beast.

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)

Clyde Beatty says he’s tried working with tame animals born in captivity, and he prefers wild ones any time. Tame animals are just like spoiled children they’ve been pampered and petted until they refuse to do anything.
