Skating with the Bears

11/17/2009 6:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This is why bears attack people.

Skating bear

The Russian Ice Circus has gone against the laws of nature and put skates on a bear and trained him to play hockey.

There's gonna be a face-off ... and it ain't gonna involve a puck.

This isn't funny or entertaining; it's animal abuse. It's disturbing and inhumane. Please take it down.

Typical Russia! No respect for anyone, humans or animals. Time and again we see repeated articles about some sort of brutal, inhumane abuse against people and animals. Its time to stop Russia from doing despicable things like this and getting away with it. Who wants to start a petition against the Russian Ice Cirucs and tell them that everybody is going to boycott their show and anything Russian, until they stop doing such sick things like this. What the hell is wrong with people!!!

That is sick. Exactly why I despise human kind so much. No respect for living creatures and finding amusement in torturing those that cannot defend themselves, and if they do try to defend themselves, the only thing they get is being shot dead.

This is disgusting. I hope it's a fake pic. How did it get its feet into skates? Heartless, inhumane people suck. I wish nothing but bad for them.

Oh, come on... Just don't tell that this is typical for Russia. I can tell the same about any country. Or you'll tell me that all the people in your country are sacred? Cruelty to animals and humans is not only Russian problem, it's the problem of the whole world. Any country has such cruel people, not only Russia. If tomorrow Harvey'll write smth about cruelty to animals in your country, will you also say that it's typical for you?

This is just plain sick!!!!! Here in Holland we have a shelter for bears like that. They can live the rest of their lives in peace and natural surroundings. It's called Berenbos (bearforrest), please please contact them to ask if the good people there want to fight for the life of this bear. Be kind and support this group of special people willing to give ALL bears their peace from these kinds of abuse!
Google Berenbos the Netherlands for more info.
This has to stop!!!
