Martin Lacey, Jr. is an animal trainer at Circus Krone. But he prefers to call himself an animal teacher: rather than tame his lions, he builds their character. When the lions in the ring roar and rear up in front of him and he keeps them in check, he feels like a lion himself — a funny two-legged lion with a tamer’s whip in his hand.
