"Zoo" on CBS

Late in the winter, we were contacted by CBS looking for a circus tiger act for the filming of a TV show called "Zoo" about animals going crazy all over the world. This obviously did not sound conducive to portraying a positive image of my animals and their lives but after further discussion with the producers and directors, it seemed like a great opportunity to participate. In late February, the film crew flew out from New Orleans for a days filming of the sequence of events on site concerning the tigers and the circus big top. It was a great experience and very interesting to see the process of making a television show. The directors were all very sensitive to the needs of the animals and the requirements for safety. I can't wait to see how it all comes together tonight !
