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.

Ice skating bears has been going on for a long time. The videos have been up on youtube for forever and its been going on for longer than this. (btw this probably isn't the same bear, i'm positive there's more than one ice skating bear in russia)

And why the hell are people getting mad at TMZ for posting the picture? You can go on a number of other sites and find pictures of piles of bodies of the victims of the holocaust, yet you don't complain about that. TMZ never condones it either. The article says "This is why bears attack people", "The Russian Ice Circus
has gone against the laws of nature", and "There's gonna be a face-off ... and it ain't gonna involve a puck." All the comments frown upon whats going on in the picture.

filled my bag limit today of squirrels. I am just going to have to go back out tomorrow and do it again to catch up with all these idiots.

As for the person telling em to enjoy Karma, I do very much so thank you very much. This is a return on your Karma right here.

btw my bag limit was 10. 10 Squirrels died because of idiot PETA people couldn't shut up.

Oh and to the slavery comment: Then why do we use leashes on our pet dogs? They would stay and not run away if they wanted to. Owning a dog is Slavery!!!!!! shut your ignorant hole and stop projecting what happened to you as a baby onto me.

Why'd He Didn't Do It?

Why not help out? A bear killed a child who reached out to pet it a couple of years ago and in October one of the bears killed a handler and injured another.

This is disgusting. Wild animals belong in the wild, not propped up in skates for entertainment for terrible people. Stupid Russian Skate Circus, I hope they all burn in hell and that the bear eats all of them one day.
