EDITORS COMMENTS
Captivating the Council: Cardiff Zoo Owner and his Fearless Bengal Tigress". In this photo print, we witness a daring spectacle that unfolded during the annual meeting of Vale of Glamorgan Borough Council in May 1977. Mr George Palmer, the esteemed owner of Cardiff Zoo, decided to make an audacious move to secure financial backing for his beloved establishment. Accompanied by his majestic Bengal tigress named Kali, he boldly entered the council chambers. The image captures both awe and trepidation as onlookers gaze upon this extraordinary sight. The identical twin brothers George and Hugh Palmer were renowned figures in Barry Zoo, affectionately known as Cardiff Zoo (Barry) within their local community. However, it was George who took center stage on this occasion with Kali by his side. This daring stunt aimed to captivate hearts and minds while highlighting the importance of supporting wildlife conservation efforts. Unfortunately, what was intended as a bold act promoting entertainment and publicity turned into legal trouble for Mr Palmer. He faced repercussions from the town's magistrates who fined him £20 and bound him over with a sum of £50 to keep peace for one year. Nevertheless, this photograph immortalizes an unforgettable moment where danger met determination in Wales' picturesque Vale of Glamorgan. It serves as a reminder that even amidst controversy or setbacks, individuals like Mr George Palmer continue to push boundaries for their passion – safeguarding our precious animal kingdom.
