Lions for Sale (1941)
10min · Documentary, Short · 9 August 1941
If taken from their mother within the first few weeks of birth, lions are trainable animals. Several such lions are seen going through their training at the world's largest lion farm: Gay's Lion Farm in El Monte, California. If a lion has only one cub in her litter, that cub is always removed from her surroundings for the cub's protection. The lion tamers look for any natural tendency within an animal's behavior to enhance in training.
