With Rajah at #SixFlags in #Vallejo #California. He was the first #whitetiger that I raised as a young cub. His sister Sakari is waiting for her turn to drink low-fat milk. I never new that this experience would lead me to #elephant and #lion conservation work in #Ethiopia. #blessedlife

A photo of me training #Bengal #Tigers at Six Flags in #Vallejo #California. I am giving Raja, the #whitetiger low-fat milk, his favorite training reward. Kana to the left looks like she wants to bite me in the ass. I was one of the trainers that bottle-fed and raised these #bigcats as very young cubs and that is why I have this type of relationship with them.

Yene nech nebrwoch. Betam tiru gize neber. A photo of me with the white #tigers that I raised at Six Flags in #Vallejo #California. There are no tigers where I live in #Ethiopia, but there are remarkable Black Mane #Lions here.

A photo of me with Rakhan, a male #Bengal #tiger. This incredible #cat weighed 450 lbs and was 12 feet tall. He was the best tiger in the world and I will forever remember him. I was a #bigcat trainer for many years at Six Flags in Vallejo #California. This experience eventually led me to my #elephant and #lion conservation work in #Ethiopia.

If you are ever in the #Bole area of #AddisAbaba #Ethiopia, Yogurt Inn is a very cool place. I’ve tried every yogurt flavor and they are all good. Cool vibe, dope music, located next to the Harmony Hotel.
