Animal rights campaigners have long said that using wild animals in circus performances should be banned. It looks like this bear might agree...
A brown bear attacked his tamers during a performance in a travelling circus in the Russian town of Berezovsky in Siberia.
The "Mash Siberia" Telegram channel posted a video showing the bear attacking the female tamer's leg. As the footage shows, most people in the audience remain seated, seemingly unperturbed by the incident, even as another tamer tries to help his colleague – and is attacked as well.
However, despite the bear lashing out at its tamers for a third time, the performance continued...now that's bear professionalism.
