The trouble with lions : a Glasgow vet in Africa

Available Formats:


  • Author: Haigh, J. C.

    The trouble with lions is that while you are conducting a pregnancy test, you need to be equally, if not more, aware of what you can learn from the lion's other end. That is one lesson that Jerry Haigh brings home in this fascinating collection of stories about working with wild animals in Africa. Conversational in tone, conservational in theme - you will be right beside Jerry, wife Jo, and a colourful cast of vets, guides, and wardens as they scour Africa - sprawling vistas - troubleshooting - lions, rhinos, humans, and other indigenous mammals. Conservationists, veterinarians, and fans of real-life adventure tales will want to keep this memoir handy on the dashboards of their Land Cruisers. - from publisher.
