Jasper Kraus's bizarre death after being pecked by a rooster made headlines around the world. But who was the man behind the clickbait headlines? Circus performer, movie stuntman, and tragically bereaved dad... this is the extraordinary story of an exceptional man.
Lots of children dream of running away with the circus, but Jasper Kraus actually did. His daughter Virginia tells of his life as a circus performer, movie stuntman and — after tragedy struck his family — as a horse whisperer.
Jasper had moved back to Ireland for an idyllic country life with his wife Anne and two children, Virginia and Kevin. By the time of his death, he hadn't seen Anne in more than two decades. Not since the horrific death of their son Kevin.
