At the Circus in the Ukraine.
Warning: Like any good mauling, a little graphic...
Nothing says "circus" like screaming children.
This entire scene begs the question; why is it culturally acceptable to put on performances that involve putting wild and potentially lethal animals in situations that are utterly foreign to them? Also, why is it so surprising and shocking when said animals begin acting like animals. That lion there, he was acting like a lion. Go figure.
From ITN news...
"Tamer Oleksie Pinko[actual name] is knocked to the ground as he desperately tries to herd the big cats out of the ring."
With a metal rod. Smooth. ITN news also states that former communist Pinko is in stable condition after emergency surgery. I couldn't resist.
