    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.

      Gimme More! Adorable Golden Retriever Wants Some Doughnuts

      Every doggo needs a good snack in the middle of the day to get some energy for running, playing fetch, and barking at everyone. Canines are very good hunters, so they can always go and catch some food, but it may be a bit difficult for them to get sweets - as then they need help from their human friends.

      Self-Control: Hilarious Golden Retriever Won't Eat Doughnuts

      Every doggo needs a lot of energy for everyday shenanigans, and this means they require a lot of food - in fact, when a canine sees something tasty it's almost impossible to stop them from eating that right there. But it seems that some doggos have a lot of discipline and self-control, so they can wait for permission to eat for hours.
