I have heard about the picture of the bear wearing ice hockey gear over at TMZ but I didn't really want to see it because I think it is cruel. Then today someone (Thanks Victoria) sent me the picture but also included an article from CNN about the same bear in the picture. I think.
I believe the picture of the bear above is the one referenced in this article from CNN. Several weeks ago a bear in Russia who was on ice skates killed the head of the circus for which the bear was trained and severely injured the trainer who came to assist the head of the circus.
The bear was killed at the scene, but it is this sentence in the article that killed me.
"It is unclear what caused the bear to attack Potapov, 25, nearly severing one of his legs while dragging him across the ice by his neck."
Really? Really you have no idea why the bear killed the guy? How about you made him wear f**king clothes, put him on ice skates, muzzled his snout and made him perform for you several times a day so you could make a buck. How about that for a f**king reason?
