The Lion Tamer has been around as long as there have been circuses. George Wombwell is considered by most to be the father of Lion Taming for entertainment purposes. His Wombwell’s Travelling Menagerie toured from the late 1700’s until the mid 1800’s. Lion taming is essentially the training of lions for entertainment purposes, particularly in circuses. The term is also often used for the training and display of other big cats such as tigers, leopards, jaguars, cheetahs, and cougars. While trained to perform certain actions or “tricks”, the animals never become truly “tamed”, hence, lion taming is a dangerous occupation due to the obvious risks of toying with powerful instinctive carnivores.
