“I knew Gus & Ursula after they retired and bought the animal park. They still had a show twice a day and yes Donald also was in the show. The added a Russian Brown Bear Act to their show and also had a Wild Cat show that yes Gus also did.. They were amazing people. Miss them Dearly.. Still talk with their Son-He is like a brother to me..
