Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
I reckon feeding an animal for eight years doesn’t mean anything...to some animals.
A zookeeper in China who had looked after a tiger for eight years found himself on the wrong end of the beasts fangs.
While cleaning the animal’s cage, the tiger, apparently agitated because the mating part of the mating season wasn’t going well, pounced on the 42-year old man, bit him in the leg and neck…and then his life was history.
The man was caught off guard when he bent over to pick up a broom.
It causes us to wonder…just how much trust can be built in a ‘wild animal’? Or can trust be earned at all.
Or is it because the tiger had other things on its mind?
Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
