FRANZEN BROS--1986 #1 (Fred Hoffman Pics)

Franzen Bros. was a small show originally out of Wisconsin.
It's owner and star performer was Brian Franzen, a Wisconsin farmboy, who trained all the animals himself. Tigers, Horses, Elephants, you name it Wayne trained them all! And he was good at it too!
Wayne died at an early age when one of his tigers attacked him.
His Son Brian now continues the tradition of his Dad by presenting Elephants and Tigers at independent dates.
