For the past 26 years, The Word On The Street has been renowned for the quality and diversity of its event programming and our next festival promises to offer the best so far. See the line-up of incredible Canadian literary talent at The Word On The Street Saskatoon Sunday, September 24, 2017.
In Porcupines to Polar Bears, wildlife veterinarian and renowned story teller Jerry Haigh shares his adventures with diverse creatures from the frozen high Arctic to the wilds of Africa and the flat lands of the Canadian prairies. Haigh has spent much time offering medical aid to very large animals including Canada’s iconic polar bears.
Jerry Haigh is a Kenya born, Glasgow schooled, wildlife veterinarian who, after ten years working with diverse species that included rhino, elephants and lions in six African countries, joined the faculty at Saskatoon’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine. In this, his fourth book, he tells of his adventures with zoo and wild creatures in Canada. They range from bison to seals, from moose to owls, and as the title suggests, from porcupines to polar bears. Two of his zoo cases involved dental work in a hippo and a lion.
