Animal pics

Jo-Anne McArthur interviewed by Canadian Geographic.  Have you seen her We Animals project?  Amazing.

Is it hard to get access as an investigative photojournalist?Sometimes you just have to play dumb. In Laos, I snuck into a bear bile farm and was snapping a bunch of photos when this guy walked up behind me and tapped me on the shoulder. Surprised, I just acted ignorant and exclaimed; “I love bears!  Where did you get them? They’re so sweet!” That bought me some time, and I was able to get in another 30 shots.

When bears stop producing “high quality” bile they cut off their paws for bear paw soup. It’s a delicacy in Vietnam. So when I saw a bear without paws, I got in close and said, “Awww … what happened to its paws!?” Sometimes I just push my luck.  After a few more photos I was pointed to the door.
