Kujo the kissing bear

Tom Harvey and his Siberian grizzly bear, Kujo share an affectionate moment this past weekend in the little town of Caney, KS. Tom and his wife Allie run the Safari Zoological Park where three baby white tigers are being raised by a golden retriever. 

The baby tigers are in the international spotlight due to numerous media appearances over the last few weeks. I came to know Tom, Allie and the entire cast of characters at the park when Harper Collins contacted me to shoot some pictures for a children’s book about the baby tigers.

I have always been an animal lover but seeing the Harveys with the animals transcends anything I’ve experienced. The two have strong personal relationships with almost all of the animals in this small private facility. I feel fortunate to know them and the animals they care for.
