The Cats are the important thing. I don't want to be judgemental about the human aspects.

I agree with the comments..that Karen deserves what she got..I'm not saying he was totally innoncent in the matter by acting the way he did..but ppl these dayz get away with alot worse..anywayz the third series should be shown..it doesnt matter to the lions what he did to her..they are whats important.

Does any1 know when the series may be shown? the secretary for lion man sed it probably would be October 2007 for NZ but longer for other countries.

P.S LET THE LIONS HAVE THAT KAREN (LOL..just kiddin)

Man, people believe any old trash that airs on TV. Craig Busch is no Joy Adamson or Steve Irwin. Those people were into their thing due to a lifelong interest and genuine concern for animal welfare. The Lion Man is manufactured for TV, and makes Craig out to be something he isn't, and the Zion Wildlife park to look like something out of Daktari (which it isn't). Far from the truth folks. In REALITY, the park is a pathetic excuse for a wildlife park, Craig is a joke, and his show stinks.

In response to the message left by Gutsfull dated Jan 11 2009. I believe your comments are thoroughly unwarranted, that is of course unless your comments are as a result of having personally witnessed every minute of the hard work and dedication Craig has put in to the preservation of endangered Big Cats, I suspect you haven’t and therefore you offer an unbalanced view of the situation.
Whether or not Craig’s life’s work is the subject of television coverage or not is not the point, even someone with your obviously blinkered view of the situation would have to applaud the success of Craigs efforts, they are fact not fiction as you see fit to imply. The reality is, Zion Garden is far from “pathetic”, under funded perhaps. The issues of preservations and conservations are global, again that is a fact. The relationship Craig has with the Big Cats would be impossible to “manufacture” as you suggest, this could only be as a direct result of his personal dedication.
I would be interested to know what your efforts towards the future of mankind and the planet include? Very little I expect.

Peaseblossom, I'd suggest you take a look at your post. Indeed, it contains many presumptions and assumptions that can only indicate you possess little in the way of cold hard fact or first hand knowledge of the situation regards Craig Busch. Given this, you can hardly be judgmental on my post.

For your information, someone in my family was close enough to Craig to allow me a good insight into the nature of the man. Regards the park...please notice, I actually live in NZ, and know full well that there are no facilities of this type in the country that rate to ANY degree on an international level. Under funded? Of course. But have you been to any wildlife parks in any other country? I have, and quite frankly to attempt to compare anything NZ has to offer is indeed a joke.

Your comments regarding my blinkered view cracks me up. It is you, and others like you that believe what you see on these "reality" type TV programs wearing the blinkers. Fact is I pride myself on being a person who has his eyes wide open, someone who sees things for what they really are. And if I know little or nothing on a subject I usually remain silent.

And your final paragraph...WTF? I doubt that you're at all interested in hearing any of that. Besides, why does the fact that I am in the 98% of the population that is not claiming to be saving the planet or the damn fur seals make me any less entitled to express opinions? And anyway, most of the people doing the real work towards this sort of thing goes about their business quietly, without the need to achieve fame or financial gain by making crap television programs....

Gf for Minister of Wildlife! What put mate. Having known Craig many years ago in another world,I think most of your comments fairly accurate.The leopard doen't normally change it's spots! If it has,good on him,but I'd be doubtful...

Craig was an animal trainer and handler in Hollywood before he came over to NZ, when he came other he brought with him 4 cubs which he bought from their owners in America and set up Zion!

So Gutsfull why don't you keep your mouth shut you know nothing!

Can't say I've never lied, but certainly not on Topix...get your facts right. The only knowledge I have of Craig is through a member of my family (DCSNZ). I MAY have referred to DCSNZ as a friend at some stage, but I've never claimed to know Craig personally.

So, John18, you're just a mutant. And obviously one that believes everything they see on the idiot box.
