THE ARK'S CARGO: FOR THE LOVE OF ANIMALS by William W. Buisch, DVM This memoir describes the challenges a young man faces in achieving his dream of becoming a veterinarian. Even a period of homelessness and limited resources do not interfere with his commitment to achieve success. And this is only the beginning! Soon he is faced with the challenges of working in the jungles of Panama, facing the ravages of a roaming black jaguar and the defenses of a native village against the entrance of man or beast. Then, how about Haiti, where the vicious Tonton Macoute militias believe in instant justice, rarely valuing life, or Columbia, where the drug lords have absolute rule. As if that isn’t enough, consider working in the African Continent with the Maasai Natives, in devastating high seas bringing the first shipment of Charolais cattle to the United States or the many facets of working with the wild mustangs in Colorado. Each exciting adventure in the pages of The Ark’s Cargo is told with suspense, drama, and humor! Inspired by biblical passages and teachings, William W. Buisch, DVM cherished his work as an International Veterinarian in the United States Department of Agriculture. His passion for improving the health and welfare of domesticated and wild animals is most noteworthy. Eventually he was assigned as the Director of International Programs for the Veterinary Services Unit of the Department’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. His area of expertise included the control and elimination of major animal diseases of economic importance on a national or multinational basis. He enjoyed working in numerous diverse cultures and observed vast improvements in the health of the animals he worked with and as a result in the people living nearby. http://www.williambuisch.com http://www.bluefunkbroadcasting.com/root/twia/wbui…
