togni's new tiger group.

Flavio Togni is a training a new tiger group with 7 tigers (3 white, 2 gold and 2 standard). They will be at Circo'o'monde at Douia in December and they will be in Cirque Arlette Gruss in the 2010 season. Probably presented by Sara Houcke. The names of the tigers are Blu, Ravi, Meri, Bianca, Nepal and the 2 new young whites are unknown.


Tommy Dieck (Tom Dieck Jr) is the son of the lion trainer Tom Dieck. He presented a group of lions at different European circuses: Pauwels, Amar, Nock, Louis Knie, Barum Siemoneit, Arlette Gruss, Malter,... Tom bought in 2004 three young lions, 2 lionesses and 2 tigers for his son and they started to train them together at Cirque Arlette Gruss while Tom Sr was presenting his own group for the last year. Tommy presented his group for the first time at Cirque Jules Verne in November 2004. In 2005 he got the season with Arlette Gruss. The next year he went on road with Probst. In 2007 his 2 tigers died because they were poisoned. It was a very sad loss for the Dieck family but while they were on tour with Circus Herman Renz they bought three new tigers (India, Daipur and Radja) to join Congo, Kassim, Ghana, Naida and Bora from the Olmense Zoo in Belgium. So since 2007 he was just performing with 5 lions (3m/2f). In January 2007 Tommy also won a Bronz Clown at the Monte Carlo Festival. In 2009 the Dieck family went to work at the Fovarsi Nagycirkusz in Hungary. For the 2009/2010 winter he will be at Cirque Bouglione Hiver at Paris and after that he will be for the second time at Circus Herman Renz. Tommy is still presenting his 5 lions and training the 3 tigers.

Adam Burck will be at Jody Jordan World circus, Royal Hanneford Circus and at a Waterpark in New York in the 2010 season with his tigers. Adam is the son of the former Hawthorn trainer Wade Burck who presented the first white tigers in the world in a circus (1978 - 1987). He also presented GGW's tigers after Gunther retired. Adam began to work with some hawthorn tigers in 2006 and bought them. Now he's adding new tigers and taking the easy tricks out of the act and putting new tricks in it.
