ZEBRA MAN: The Greatest Hunter That Never Was

He was known as the Zebra Man.

Or as The Great Omi.

He was said to be a hunter from a distant land.

A killer of men and a cannibal.

The truth is that his name was Horace Ridler and he was a professional sideshow freak from the early 1900’s.

He was actually born in Great Britain in 1882 and became Zebra Man through somewhere between $3,000 – $10,000 worth of tattooing.

He supposedly made all that and more back as a circus freak.

His tales of being a great tribal hunter no doubt helping him to make money.
