Mabel Stark the Tiger Queen - Part 1: The First Female Tiger Tamer
Show Notes

Tiger King move OVER!! Mabel Stark can surely be labeled the Tiger Queen. As the first female headlining a Big Cat act in a U.S. circus, Mabel paved the way for so many female trainers that followed. Small in stature, but tough as nails, and a voice that could arguably shatter glass. Join us while we explore Mabel's rise to stardom as she does all she can, and we mean ALL, to leave her past behind and get close to the tigers.
