About me

Gender Male
Occupation Wildlife Veterinarian, Author, Storyteller
Location Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
Introduction My career as a wildlife veterinarian and storyteller has taken me to many countries for work on a wide range of species. I enjoy relating stories about the wild animal work, which range from having soldier ants up my shorts and pregnancy checking a lion to giving an enema to a rhino and encounters with a shaman from the Tsaatan reindeer herders in the mountains of Mongolia. I enjoy weaving African and other folktales into accounts of my own experiences with animals. In Africa I have worked in Kenya, Uganda, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa and Cameroon. In North America I have worked on species as diverse as polar bears, wood bison, seals, wolves, moose and elk. For thirty years I have worked on a wide variety of deer species on four continents. If you entered this blog directly you might like to take a look at pictures and extracts of my three books "Wrestling With Rhinos", "The Trouble With Lions" and "Of Moose and Men" that you can find on my web site at

Well, maybe they don't need them, but don't you think that some fish might like a bicycle?
