Biography details

Jürgen Johannsen , wildlife animal trader in Germany

Born ? in Denmark .

1922: On June 1, the Times announced that Jurgen Johannsen had docked with one of the largest cargoes of wild animals ever brought to the Port of New York.

The United American liner Mount Carroll shipment consigned by Hagenbeck’s American representative contained thirteen baby elephants, 200 monkeys with 60 babies in arms, two Bengal tigers, two sloth bears, three black panthers, two hippos, along with about 900 birds and 56 snakes. The cargo had been kept company by eight “educated dogs.”

Johannsen showed records that proved he was the “world’s champion elephant catcher” having captured 318 of the animals in the hills of India in just ten weeks for the British government (“Brings Big Cargo of Wild Animals” June 1, 1922: 4).
