The Wild Alien Tamer - Mike Resnick

The third tale of the Galactic Midway's staffing issue is as the title suggests. His lion and leopards have both died, succumbing to the stresses of interstellar travel. And finally his big ol' bear passes away too, leaving him without an act and too highly paid to help someone else out. So he is finally given a ship to go round up some animals. However, an employee makes a deal - a big batlike alien volunteers to be the 'animal' in his show for a good percentage. On worlds that find humans scary, they swap. Then fight. A lot.
