Horror as Bear on a Bike EATS a Monkey at the End of Sick Circus Cycle Race
Daily Mail ^

Posted on 05/08/2013 11:59:32 AM PDT by nickcarraway

A monkey was mauled by a bear after a disturbing circus stunt went wrong.

A video has emerged online of two monkeys and a black bear being forced to ride bicycles around a track in front of a large crowd.

After two laps of the track, one of the monkeys crash and the bear then attacks it as it lies stuck under the bicycle.ok

The gruesome video is believed to have been shot at the Shanghai Wild Animal Park, in China, which has hit the headlines in the past for its 'Wild Animal Olympics'.

In the video, the audience can be heard cheering and laughing as the animals are sent riding around the small arena.

Circus workers holding sticks push the small bikes off but after a few seconds one monkey and the bear crash. Staff can be seen desperately trying to force the bear off as it grabs the small monkey in its mouth.

At one stage three workers, dressed in brightly coloured costumes, try to wrestle the bear away, while another leads the second monkey away.

I’m sure the audience was envious of the bear getting to eat that tasty monkey all by himself.

Bears are not warm cuddly animals. They are unpredictable and treacherous.

Some days you eat the bear.

Some days the bear eats you.

Or your monkey.

You sure that wasn’t the actual idea of the act?

Near the end, watch the guy who finally is able to pull the monkey away from the bear...and quickly wipes his hand on his pants.

When asked the most obvious question the bear merely replied (in cantonese): “Tastes just like chicken”.

This is what happens when animals are forced to do unnatural “stunts.”

A bear is a wild animal....expect it to behave like one, especially when under such stress.

I'm a little weirded out by the whole circus-animal / zoo thing. The circuses seem like a total mess, and the zoos seem like animal Supermax prisons. And I'm a right-wing conservative, not some PETA clown

I haven’t been to a traditional circus since I went to see Cirque du Soleil. There’s absolutely no comparison, none whatsoever.

The monkey always wondered what would happen if he let the bear win the race...

...today he found out.

No, but the Pope craps in the woods. A Catholic bear told me so.

I weirded out right along with you - especially the circuses.

I especially hate it when they have rodents riding minibikes and jet skis.

And then there are the clowns ..... (shudder)

If a bear was eating a monkey, I’m not sure I would be the first one to pull it out of his mouth. I’m sort of partial to my own fingers.

I’ve always hated the circus. My parents took me to one when I was a kid. There was the lion tamer, smacking this creature with a whip, taunting it with a chair, while the band played “Born Free”. I think I was about 9. I told them I never wanted to go to another one.

Don’t even get me started on the clowns....

I read the headline as “monkey on the end of a stick”.

I thought wow, a bear riding a bicycle eats a monkey on a stick? That’s some circus act!

So what’s your point?

Bear and ape baiting was a favorite pastime in Shakespeare’s lifetime.

I am sure the monkey in trouble triggered the predatory instinct in the bear. Wounded prey is the easiest to attack.

It's mentioned in Merry Wives of Windsor. As it were, bear baiting was the competition for Shakespeare. They were competing for bums on seats.
